Ohh, this is beautiful. When I was there in November, the lake was mostly mud with a few small pools, and the sky was grey. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back there sometime soon! Or at least when it’s lush and colorful.

Lorrie – if it helps, I was walking through the botanic gardens about two hours ago and there was plenty of water in the lake, the sky was blue and the sun was lovely and warm. :-)

That does help! :) Even if it was two weeks ago, now.. :)

look nice – reminds me kinda of the Botanical Gardens in Christchurch, NZ. Kinda wishing I was there instead of here (Sweden) with no more snow :p

Absolutely stunning picture. It makes me feel like taking a big breathe to inhale the fresh air and scents.

Thank you!

I LOVE botanical gardens (they make me calm), especially the one in Zurich, Switzerland.

Really great picture! I’m pretty jealous you were in Australia and New Zealand, I haven’t been able to make it there yet. I am looking forward to reading more about your experiences there.

Aren’t these water lilies or am I being daft?

I love the pic though. It seems like you can smell the fresh air. :)
