Each year during the long weekend in March….

the City of Ballarat holds its Begonia Festival.

Although I have never attended the Festival,

last year I visited Ballarat in mid-February

and had a chat to this gardener,

one of many who prepare

the City’s Begonias for the Festival.

The inaugural Begonia Festival was held

on 12 March 1953,

which makes it nearly as old as I am 🙂


Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge: Festival



Taji is barely six months old here…

 however, the thought of Maggie’s bone

is more tantalizing than chewing

the one at her side.

For the record, three years on,

Taji and Candi still want each others bones.
