Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney
Our holiday in New South Wales
Some sections of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney are just broad expanses of lawn. This is an important part of the gardens because so many thousands of people visit the gardens every week, many of them coming for picnics or just plain relaxation in the beautiful surroundings.
My wife and I have a different set of interests. I like to go birding (bird watching) while my wife is interested in Australian native plants. Bordering the wide spread of lawns there are many sections of the gardens where plants are in abundance, some of them quite brilliant in colour like those shown in todays photos. I mainly love taking photos of birds, but flowers also take my eye as wonderful photographic subjects.
