More of the Royal Botanic Gardens

Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the inside of the William Tell Chapel (see yesterdays post https://deliciousfoodandtravel.wordpress.com/2012/11/09/royal-botanic-gardens-melbourne/ but I wanted to share some more photos from our walk around the gardens.

These were taken in September when Mum and I were doing the Mali sculpture challenge.  The gardens still had a feeling of being in Winter.  The Rhododendrons, Camelias and Azaleas were all flowering as were the Clivias in their orange splendour.

This is an unsual flower that I hadn’t seen before.

Another unusual flower.

I love the reflections in this photo but also the two buildings in the background.  One is Government House and the glass building is Eureka Tower, Melbourne’s tallest building.  It’s a case of the old and the new.
