Weekend Wanderings: Royal Botanical Gardens Cranbourne
The other day I showed you some photos that I took of the Royal Botanical Garden in Cranbourne and I said I would show you some photos that I took last weekend when I went there to visit. We were there for Social Snappers and we had a great afternoon. As I was heading there it was raining. When I got there it was still raining, so we headed to the cafe and had coffee. By the time we were finished it was like this outside.
Overcast, but no rain. It seemed too true to be perfect. We decided to go out and see what we could get.
The above image is the big garden you first see when you get there. You can’t go in there and can only look at it from behind a fence.
There is so much to see there and if you like gardens it is a great place to wander around. You can see what is possible, though it is also great because I think this one is more about Australia and what you can find here.
You can see that the sky was lovely and blue, we really did get lucky with the weather.
You get to see some amazing things, and things that you have no idea what they are. The above was like that for me. What is it? We all wanted to know, but none of us had any idea. From the side it looked like a pineapple. So if you know would love to hear.
There were little birds everywhere. It was great to see them. Of course I had the wrong lens on, so I had to do what I could. I might have to go back another time with a bigger lens.
It was so amazing, it was sort of like every where you look there was something different. I think you could spend quite a bit of time there exploring everything. I might have to try that one day, go there, when the weather is better, and just take photos all around. Maybe take a bigger lens to see if I can get the birds as well.
I have a lot more photos for you now which I’m going to show you in a gallery. I have more photos to take today and I hope you will be doing the same this Sunday. The weather is meant to be beautiful here so that will be nice.
