  Het Zand Square

fountain…

 

 

…in Brugge,

Belgium

Whether in Black and White…

…or a colourful abstract…

…the El Alamein Fountain at

Sydney’s, King’s Cross

makes for spectacular viewing.

 

Back home again and just inside

the main gate to Geelong’s

Botanic Gardens is a fountain,

which on the few occasions I have visited

the Gardens, has been inactive.

The

Rose Window

in York Minster.

 

 

The centre does not always mean something circular.

I would suggest that this Rose Window is

centrally located in the triangle created

by York Minster roof

Geelong Botanic Gardens…



…contains what I would describe as……

…a rather large….

…succulent garden.

Everything from tall and skinny

to round and dumpy cacti on display.

 

 

Sadly several years after capturing these images

I paid another visit only to discover any/most

of the cacti had been cut in half. 

Vandals or pruning?

Upon entering the

Geelong

Botanical Gardens…

…visitors are greeted by this couple.

After a brief chat and obligatory photos,

we continued on to the fountain.

 

I don’t think cycling is allowed in the Geelong Gardens,

however, this bloke was nice enough to stop and…

 

…and let the bridal party pass by.

…which may be better known as a

California Giant Redwood.
