GAR­DEN­ING AUS­TRALIA

Costa Ge­or­giadis is noth­ing if not fes­tive. This is a bloke who has pre­vi­ously al­lowed peo­ple to dec­o­rate his mighty beard with a record 21 chop­sticks and 37 pen­cils. Tonight, he even per­mits a trim — here and there — as he’s decked out for Can­berra’s Flo­ri­ade Fes­ti­val, a 30-day cel­e­bra­tion of blooms, food and en­ter­tain­ment. “I’m not just ready for Flo­ri­ade. I am Flo­ri­ade!” he says. It’s a hayfever suf­ferer’s worst night­mare, but Costa is in his el­e­ment, pranc­ing through the fes­ti­val hand­ing out stems like a flo­ral sprite.
