Geelong Botanic Gardens

17 September 2017, Geelong, Victoria

.

We had a free day in Geelong and we visited the Art Gallery and the Botanic Gardens.  There was a very impressive exhibition at the Art Gallery of landscapes of Australian artist Fred Williams but no photographs were allowed in any case.

This is obviously the end of a fern but I didn’t photograph many labels, so I can’t tell you what most of these plants are.

    Beautiful photos. They’ve really brightened up my corner of a drab and dreary England – thanks for posting!

  4. Love the aspect on the redwood, and the purple lupins(?) reminded me of a group of standing meerkats.
