Aspects of Kings Park...à bientôt!



Aimee and I were up with the sparrows yesterday morning, she missed out on last weekend's visit to Kings Park and wanted to take detail photos of the wildflowers for her blog, wait till you see them, fantastique! Leaving the close-ups to Aimee I enjoyed taking the wider view.. recognise the 'royal funky trunk' in the reflection below :) and to the right and above the gorgeous Bella Umbrellas adorning the entrance to Aspects of Kings Park..


We had breakfast in the Botanical Cafe, thanks Aimee :) overlooking the city and below the view looking back up to the cafe with Fraser's Restaurant to the right..


Pretty fab views out across the Swan River..


Yes, that IS Elizabeth Quay you can see through there.. not looking :)


Much better :)


This wonderful bench with the Banksia leaf design along the back sits at the entrance to the Banksia Garden and also overlooks the fountain above. I mentioned in my last post that it's been a while since I 'tended' my jungle garden, so as it's a long weekend I think I may take time out to do just that, and a million other things also :) I'll catch up next week, until then have a brilliant weekend, take care and stay safe..
