Is there anything quite like spring? A season of fresh beginnings, of re-awakening, and Brisbane is quite literally blooming with a number of events throughout the city celebrating this beautiful time of year.
Blooms and Tunes – Roma Street Parkland
Every weekend in September, Roma Street Parkland combines flowers with live music and picnics! It’s the brand new spring event, Blooms and Tunes.
With over 15,000 annuals blooming, and mass plantings of pansies, snapdragons and foxgloves just to name a few, it’s a visual spectacle for all.
There’s more than just a feast for the eyes though with The Garden Café producing specially crafted picnic hampers for the event, filled with the finest of local produce by highly experienced Chef, Simon Garbutt.
“We’ve got cured meats, a beetroot dip, a home-made hummus, some locally bakes breads from our local baker, and we have some artisan sour cream cultured butter,” Simon said. “We pull some of the herbs from the garden as well.”
What better way to enjoy such feasts than on the lawn listening to live music from artists like singer-songwriter Andrea Kirwin.
“I play, I guess the genre would be Sunshine Coast easy listening,” Andrea said. “It relaxes people but it also makes them feel good which I love so everyone’s out enjoying picnics with their families in the sunshine, it’s wonderful!”
“Blooms and Tunes is something that I feel really passionate about,” said Andrea. “All my music is flower related, so my new album coming out is actually called Bloom.”
