As I walked along the Inner Harbour the other morning, I noticed how vibrant and eye-catching were the “Welcome to Victoria” flower beds along the lower causeway. The gardening staff of the city have chosen a very pretty yellow for the beds this year. It shines from a long way off!

Cheery flower beds welcome all our visitors!
