Queens Gardens Townsville 107, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.
Ailsa’s of “Where’s my backpack” theme this week was perfect timing for me as on Friday I had spent 4 hours strolling around Queens Gardens in Townsville. This delightful 4 hectare Botanic Garden is a haven of beauty, foliage over-load. Enormous trees, flowering shrubs, cactus and succulents in a hot dry corner, herb garden a sensory mingling of perfumes, a large collection of frangipani trees sending out their unique sweet scent that sings of the tropics, and all along one side a path leading you through a tropical rainforest.
So much foliage. What to choose? I took 100’s of photos…
So this week something different I have put in a short video of part of the rainforest walk. I hope you enjoy the stroll with me.
Lovely video clip, now I really feel that I’m there with you. It actually reminded me a little bit of the Singapore Botanical Gardens – which reminds me that we should visit that place soon. 🙂
