More from Horsham Botanical Gardens

flower_7425As  you enter the Gardens via the…
flowers_7425main entrance, visitors are greeted with

mass plantings either side of the path.
flower_7426Although I have not seen this colour previously,

I think these are pansies and I think

they look spectacular in mass plantings like this.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Reflections-Shadows.

~~~~~

Love this theme….

river-a6_0009These shadows and reflections look better in colour than in BW.

river_0008The northern sun and a large gum tree combine

to cast a long shadow over the river,

while south bank trees are reflected in the water.

reflection_0187National Art Gallery wall in Melbourne.

reflection_0490I took this shot during our walk around

Melbourne Laneways.

The crane appears to be ready to topple and

only very recently, one did.

table_7477And after all that walking around taking photos,

what better place to relax than under a shady tree.
