Jo’s Monday Walk

 

Last Monday I happened upon a 

previously unexplored section of

Geelong Botanic Gardens.


geelong-botanic-gardens1_0191A bright sunny day and this track lead me to

a wetland of sorts, and also to…


geelong-botanic-gardens2_0188this sign.  I would have thought it common sense

but apparently we have to warn everyone.  

It is December, reptiles are on the move

and one was even found in a Melbourne

(Central Business District) street last week.

The hour, the heat and the sign kinda of prevented me

from wandering down his side.

geelong-botanic-gardens4_0186I took the left tun and hoped there would not

be snakes in the shadier section.

Native grasses have all seeded..

and provided some interesting compositions.

However, a stiff breeze kept all grasses moving

which made focusing difficult

The only thing not swaying in thee breeze

was this junior pine tree.

 I wish all fellow bloggers

a Merry Christmas and

a Safe, Prosperous and

Happy New Year.

The only one I am 100 percent sure of

this time of year…a small pine tree.
