A Day In Photos...

Last Friday Matilda, Myles & I spent the afternoon at the Brisbane Botanical Gardens, right at the base of Mount Coot-tha. We have been wanting to visit the gardens for some time and the overcast day was ideal, not too hot to be out in the sun.

Will let the photos speak for themselves...a bit of a lazy post really...

Inside the Geodesic Dome...the Tropical Garden


Dome reflection on the pond...


Making a new friend...




In the Japanese Garden...(my favourite)


Wild Bearded Dragons everywhere, from tiny, wee ones to some quite huge. We spent the best part of an hour watching these magnificent creatures...they are amazing swimmers.




The Hide & Seek Children's Trail winds right through the gardens...it is dotted with gorgeous sculpture and treasures to find. This dragonfly sculpture caught my attention...they have a special place in my heart.


It was a lovely gentle afternoon, lots of time for conversation...will revisit as the seasons change.
