Botanical Garden Walk

A short walk with my hubby...while recapturing the moment not too seriously but having fun!


Botanical gardens are supposed to be our great guide to visit and learn the plants that we can plant or thrive in our own gardens at home. Sometimes, we like to come here and hang around picking some autumn leaves, cute little pine cones, oak tree cones, etc. for my handcrafts or natural decorations.


Here's inside the Statuary Pavilion house centered by Charles Summer's Flight from Pompeii, which is a great reminder of Ballarat's wealth of the 1880's. It's just about to close when we took this photo so we did not really continue to focus and photo-shoots around the Pavilion.



At my back is a side view of the The Robert Clark Conservatory.
It's where the famous Ballarat Begonia's flower displayed during Begonia's Festival held at this garden.


Pardon me, for forgetting the name of these pretty pinky flowers...


My fernery hubby...his favorite plants are ferns actually ;-) it's a fernville green house obviously!
Very cool under the greenery shades especially if you come around here during hot Summer to tell the difference than the usual lovely cold of Ballarat.


Upward exercise as well... FERNS reminded me of our tropical country in the Philippines. Where ferns are just around the mountain paths, streams, river banks, or anywhere where I grew up. Sometimes you realize, ferns are bought plants if you want them around your gardens here in the Western non-tropical areas.


Sun reflections...


beautiful Garden pathways...


COOL SHADE of a big flowering tree...it's like a magnolia flowers.
Although flowers I think almost fallen off for its next season bloom.


An ACORN from that old Oak tree...I really wonder how it tastes like. Hubby said, "you can try if you like" after I checked what Wikipedia says about the acorn.

Ouchhh... can't you feel that?



I've killed it before it kills me man!


I told you, it was a short walk so there's not much garden plants photos we've taken. More photos next time from my older collections of the Botanical garden located just the opposite of Wendouree Lake, Victoria. Sorry there are no Begonia flowers in the garden after the Begonia Festival. It was not as big fest as it was used to be, they said.
