Taupo Gardens…9I know I have posted rhododendrons previously

however they are not all from

the same bush/tree/plant.

These shots were taken as we completed

our walk around this downtown garden.

 

 

Some of the bushes were hanging

over the footpath like this one.

Taupo Gardens…8It almost seemed like it was raining blossom…

in some part of this relatively small garden.

 

 

A close up of the pink camellia.

I did not notice the photo bomber

until I cropped to accentuate the dew,

which is not clearly visible on WP.

Taupo Gardens…7I think this is another rhododendron,

however, it appears to have a different leaf.

It was difficult getting close to these blooms.

 

 

Was so busy looking at the artwork, that…

nearly did not notice the Camellias.

Taupo Gardens…6I may have posted a cropped version

of this photo previously.

Just wish we could grow rhododendrons

likes this in our garden.

I am fairly certain the nest two images…

…are both camellias.

Attractive as this is I do not know its name.

Taupo Gardens…4Not a floral start to this week’s post,

but I figured we could all do with

some world peace.

Sri Chinmoy dedicated his life to World Peace.

Google tells me he founded the

Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in 1977.

Apparently there was, or are, runs/races

in Geelong in the name of Sri Chinmoy.

Which means one of two things;

that I am not  interested in world peace, or

that I am not that athletic.

I choose the latter. 🙂

 

Now that my level of athleticism has been established,

let’s move on to some hellebores.

And some rhododendrons…in bushes

the size of which,

I have never previously laid eyes upon

In late September sunshine…

…the blooms looked just as good close up.

Taupo Gardens…3Last week I ceased at the boomerang garden beds.

There is a bit more ‘Floral’ in…

this week’s Friday.

I can assure you that there is…

…a very pretty/floral section of this garden.

This image is nearly at the beginning

of that ‘floral’ section.
