Location: Tulips Top Garden, Canberra (Australia)
Open only from mid-Sept to mid-Oct every year
Smiling in inevitable. As soon as you step inside the flower laden gate, a wide irrepressible smile spreads across your face. Tulips of numerous varieties in hues as if stollen from a fairy tale, welcome you inside. Beware, because you would never wish to leave this place. The trees are covered in cherry blossoms, in bright happy colors – red, pink, blue, white, yellow. In fact, there are trees with flowers blooming in mixed colors too.
My September had never looked so pretty and magical. Inspite of a drizzle and slightly muddy pathways, I visited every row and appreciated each variety of flowers the Tulip Top Gardens had in store.

Tulips are my favourite flowers! And these cherry blossom trees always look so magical and feminine and beautiful at the same time! Amazing clicks 🙂
Beautiful cherry blossoms & stunning pictures!! This year in NY, cherry blossoms are a bit late in blooming. Can't wait to see them in full bloom.

I love cherry blossoms. Your pics are spectacular. Made me feel happy. Nice one Raj.
Absolutely beautiful photos. Beats the Washinton cherry blossoms on USA postage stamps by miles.
Such beautiful trees. I love cherry blossom – some of the tree round here have just popped with blossom and they are so lovely.
