Floriade vs Skyfire

By fractal - 16 March 2009 9

I just ran through Commonwealth park and noticed they’ve started ripping up the ground for Floriade – big piles of earth everywhere.

Isn’t that going to make it kind of a mess for Skyfire this coming weekend? You’d think they could’ve waited one more week to start ripping it up!

mebbe they can plant lots of allergy-inducing blossoms at floriade and do what we did to the martians in ‘war of the worlds’ (though preferably without bloody tom croooze)

My money is on Skyfire, since they have Floriade seriously out gunned. But if, as you suggest, Floriade is undermining Skyfire, they might be in with a shot.

I thought this was going to be a local version of Alien vs Predator.

It won’t be a problem if you remember that Skyfire makes you look up, Floriade down.

I mixed it up one year and missed both.

Why did I have to read that immediately after taking a sip of water?!?! Now my screen is all wet!

Gold. Pure gold.

Fireworks are crap; they’re always the same. Flowers thrive on crap, so when the crap goes up in the air it’s a good time to have your flower beds ready (what goes up must come down after all)…

+1.

in my case, it was bonox.

Nope – according to Cedric now is the time to be buying and planting your bulbs…..

But Floriade isn’t until September…aren’t they a bit early?

Somehow I don’t think two well established Canberra events would clash and screw up in the way you’re suggesting but we will have to see closer to the time.
