Our holiday in New South Wales

September 2007

On our recent holiday in New South Wales, ACT and Victoria we visited five different botanic gardens. While in Sydney we spent an afternoon in the Royal Botanic Gardens which are within an easy walk of the CBD.

While we were generally quite disappointed in the representation of Australian native plants in the gardens, we did find two small sections with a few interesting plants. Some of these were in flower at the time so our cameras naturally came out of their cases. The photos shown here are just a few of the nicer plants in flower.

    Those flowers looks so interesting and unique. Gosh, it would be pretty lovely and mind bending to see what the flowers of the rest of the world looks like in a slide show.

    We are fortunate here in Australia to have so many beautiful native plants, many of them with stunning – and unusual flowers. I have some slide shows prepared for showing to groups and these are always well received. You may wish to see some of these by going to my photo gallery.
