Today I popped to the Brisbane Botanical Garden, it's definitely more of a park than actual botanical gardens but it was pretty, and it was a lovely place to spend some time in the middle of the day - the shady trees were a welcome respite from the midday sun!
I loved these beautiful flowers
I saw so many lizards today! I still can't quite get used to them being everywhere- I lost count at around 5
little photo of me and one of the lovely water fountains
These birds are so much more common than pigeons here - aren't the cute!
There's also nearly always the odd crazy turkey running around any green space int he city!
A banyan tree (I love these trees and their aerial roots)
After walking throughout the gardens I headed to their southern point and then followed them up the river where there were some pretty boats moored with the skyscrapers as their backdrop
after following the river I ended up back in the city centre - so lots of old buildings to admire
The sky turned the prettiest colour as I was walking home, sadly I've yet to catch a proper sunset - I think Singapore spoilt me as they had amazing sunsets every night!
