Favorite thing: Of the many times I've been to Floriade, this was one of the best. The theme this year was food; food in many forms. Food as a watermelon, food as a barbecue, food as citrus, food as chocolate etc. The flower patterns are painstakingly woven into all these shapes and make for such a delightful cacophany of colour as to delight even the most discerning eye.

Fondest memory: It's just such a pleasure and I confess to getting a buzz everytime I turn up at the gate and, the best thing of all - IT'S FREE!
