Played by Evie Parks, of Innaloo (18) this year, the Adorable Florable and her friends will be part of several events this month, including the Fantastic Faraway festival on September 12 in the Lotterywest Family Area.

Ms Parks, who has worked for the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA) for about nine months, said the Silver Princess was iconic West Australian flora, very sweet, loved herself and thinks everyone else loves her too.

�I�m looking forward to being able to showcase the flora and fauna, seeing the wildflowers and listening to the live music,� she said.

The theme of this year�s festival is �Beauty Rich and Rare� and celebrates the 50th anniversary of BGPA, which includes collecting 50 stories, of 50 words over 50 days starting from today.

People are invited to share their stories of Kings Park from weddings to family reunions, marriage proposals, first kisses and school ball photos. Email stories to competitions@bgpa.wa.gov.au. See the Facebook page for more information on prizes.
