Over the last few days I have shared some photos I took last spring on a visit to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. It was a delightful sunny day with many trees and other plants in flower. We had just come from a food fair so we really needed the walk before heading off on the journey home to Murray Bridge.
I managed to take quite a nice little collection of photo despite the batteries on my camera going flat – and the spare batteries I had with me were also flat! Never mind – I did get some.
My wife and I enjoy visiting botanic gardens whenever we travel. On an interstate holiday recently we visited all the major and few minor botanic gardens along the route. In fact, I especially chose the route to include as many as we could see in the three weeks we were away.
My wife enjoys looking at the plants, especially the native Australian plants. I enjoy looking for the bird life and botanic gardens with their abundant plant communities are ideal for this. I also love taking photos of the spectacular plants in flower.
Yesterday I shared a few photos taken on a recent trip to one of our nearest gardens, the Adelaide Botanic Gardens here in South Australia. They are about a fifteen minute stroll from the CBD of our capital city. Today I share a few more photos taken there last spring.
Late last year we attended a special food fair in Norwood in suburban Adelaide. After sampling the various wonderful Chinese and southeast Asian food on offer we decided to visit the Adelaide Botanic Gardens for an hour or so. It was a sunny spring afternoon and just right for some photography. I thought I’d share some of my photos today and over the next few days.
I would have liked to have taken more photos but the batteries in my camera went flat. When I went to replace them I found that the spare batteries were also flat. You have days like that! It forced me to relax and enjoy the beautiful environment.
