A Walk to the Botanic Gardens

Continuing on from yesterday’s post, here are more of my photos from the Botanic Garden!  I’m just gonna say now, there’s quite a few photos in this post, but this is the most I could narrow it down. Just skim if you’d like!

I have a thing for taking photos from the ground up. I like squatting down and taking a photograph looking up at giant things. I may look weird as I do it, but the photo always comes out nice. This tree needs more leaves don’t you think?

This next tree on the other hand needs to get it’s branches under control.

This is the main garden. The official entrance takes you through here, but we like to come through the random side gates and make our way down. There’s always an impressive array of colours and pretty flowers here.

I like these ones. I never confirmed it, but they may be baby’s breath. They are a favourite flower of mine (it’s tattooed on me and everything). Seeing so many of them together made them look like a fluffy cloud.

As we moved away from the main garden, we climbed up our usual path to make our way to the Rose Garden. The cafe is also in that area, and since we left just before lunch we were getting hungry. I like to stop at the highest point of the walk to take a photo of the garden from above.

In the middle of the rose garden is this little fountain. It’s nothing too impressive, but it makes a nice focal point. Also, ducks.

As we waited for our food, I galavanted around taking lots of photos of the flowers. If you want to see those photos, check out yesterday’s post! Next to the cafe is the Begonia House, which is always very warm and home to many tropic plants. My favourite part is the lily pond at the end.

There were many goldfish around which I kept trying to photograph, but they were all blurry. I did luck out with one particular shot though.

Finally, we just walked around aimlessly. Enjoying the sights, the sun, and each other’s company.

I did ask Rory to take some shots of me. I normally hesitate on asking people to take photos of me, preferring to take selfies (also I feel like I’m bothering people), but the background was too pretty to pass up. Here are my favourite ones from random places around the garden!

The last stop we made was to the duck pond. Because you have to say hi to the ducks.

Hi Duck (and Pigeons).
