A bench at the start of the Botanical Gardens in Canberra.

Can you see the small pond alongside? It was alive with the chorus of Motor bike frogs.

  1. G’day Pommepal. While this is not about benches, you’re being a gardener, I thought you’d enjoy this photo of my wisteria when I lived in New Zealand https://jenniferbgrahamtravel.wordpress.com/2015/02/10/wisteria/ Sorry, I didn’t know where else to post it but here. πŸ™‚

  2. I didn’t get to the Botanical Garden as it was raining on the day we had put aside for it! But I shall definitely have to go next time. Lovely benches, but made even more delightful by listening to those evocative motorbike frogs. Wonderful! And thank you PP πŸ™‚

    • It is quite unique in that they only specialise in all Australian species. I particularly enjoyed the huge variety of gum trees. I think I read they had 67 named varieties.
