7 Days of Nature Photography : Day 4…

Continuing to another part of the Roma Street Parklands after the mysterious and misty fern gully, the Spectacle Garden is a blaze of colour, shape and form. The paths wind round through the beds of annuals and over in the corner I spot a scarecrow protecting a small herb and veggie patch.

I love the attention to detail. Notice how the wall is colour coördinated to compliment the bromeliad flower.

This water dragon stayed so still I thought he was a sculpture, until he turned his head to look at me.

Thanks Gilly (Lucid Gypsy) for nominating me. I’m enjoying splitting my Parklands day-out into smaller posts. Normally I would do one big post with lots of photos. Maybe this way is better for my followers, especially when time is limited, so many blogs to visit out there in cyberspace…

Today I would like to invite Gerrie (Canberra’s green spaces) to join in this challenge. Gerrie lives in Canberra, Australia’s capital city, a beautiful city with lots of gardens and parks that she delights in showing us. So I think it will be a pleasure to see her daily nature photos. Hope you have the time to fit it in Gerrie.

  7. I can’t help admiring topiary gardens, they are so labour intensive. Love the dragon, I imagine he eats insect pests. I wonder which came first with the pink wall and bromeliad, it’s perfect placing 🙂
