Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens part 3
Parks and gardens are usually very relaxing places to visit. We are fortunate living in South Australia because we have many beautiful and well kept parks and gardens. Foremost amongst those are the various sections of the historic Adelaide Botanic Gardens. Featured in the photos here, however, are sections of the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens, an easy half hour drive from the CBD.
On a visit last October we walked through the upper section of the gardens. We particularly enjoyed looking at the vast collection of rhododendrons in flower. They made a spectacular display on that magnificent spring day. In January of this year I had the delight of walking through naturally occurring rhododendron forests on my trek in the Everest region of Nepal. Unfortunately it was winter in Nepal, so I didn’t get to see them flowering.
