Photography in the Botanic Gardens

I have just discovered that I have been voted first place in last week's Tina's  Friday flowers link. Thank you so much Tina! I am truly honored that others are enjoying my photographs! This blogging caper is amazing!!





Here are some more photographs from my trip with my son, Buster to the Australian National Botanic Gardens. Last week I focused on the unique Banksia flower, This week I I have tried to capture some of the beautiful and colorful plants flowering at this time of the year.

Even GrumpyDaddy doesn't know the name of this one....any ideas?

This weekend I'm sharing these Australian Native Flowers at Tina's Weekend Flowers and Ewa's Flowers on Saturday.

  6. Hello Nicole
    Very nice pictures you show - all other flowers than those we have in Denmark.
    Do you wonder if summer / sun now?
    The weather here at present. + 5.5 deg / gray - we have not yet spring.
    Wishing you a good weekend.
    Hugs Hanne Bente ♥

  9. Well done on being voted first place... it's a lovely feeling, isn't it? I was thrilled the week I was voted No. 1.
    I was voted in the top 2 weeks ago and didn't realise because I had no flowers to post the following week. I love the Weekend flowers link up.
