~Floriade Canberra and Tuliptime Bowral~

We recently took JoJo to Florida to see Rick the Organ Man at Florida
Rick is the Proprietor of and operates the Australia Fair Organ 

JoJo is fascinated by this Organ and she talks about it every day even down to the drum on it

Here she is with Rick after she handed over a drawing of the Organ to him
He was tickled pink and is going to put it up in his Workshop
She has built up such a lovely relationship with him over the years

Helping Rick hold up one of the books for playing

Rick kindly gave JoJo a printed Tea Towel and she was just so stoked about this

Thank you so much Rick!!!
You are her Hero!!!

Watching the Organ in action with her Dad

Rick's little Tea Corner which JoJo had me asking him what he has in his Tea.....what he has for lunch etc.....

We took a trip up to the Southern Highlands and also saw Tulips in Corbett Gardens there

All so very, very pretty

down to the Tulips in the bricks!!!

Hello Dzintra,

The communication between JoJo and Rick was lovely to hear about. So many beautiful blooms to see. Love those bricks.

Happy days.

Isn't it heartwarming to see JoJo with Rick. It's wonderful to be passionate about something and a magical old time organ is a great thing to be fascinated by. The tulips are so beautiful too, its fun to see them in the bricks as well.
