Tiptoe through the tulips.. encore et fini.



From the moment you cross the bridge down into the valley and the Araluen Botanic Park, with or without the glorious displays of tulips, it feels a little like entering a secret garden that you and thousands of others at the same time have just discovered!


Without doubt the most popular spot to take the all important photos, whether it be a selfie or a group is the fountain running into the lake below...


One last gratuitous tulip shot looking back up to the fountain. One thing I would advise if visiting the park.. watch your step!! I have already had my unladylike faceplant this year and didn't/don't intend to have another :) I have blossoms of another kind for you tomorrow, the first event we went to on the weekend. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  6. My goodness, the beauty of this place is overwhelming. It reminds me of some Japanese gardens I have seen. I'd want to spend several days there. And again, your photos are the best!

  12. Gorgeous spot! Gardens like this lift my heart like nothing else can. I'm posting shots of my favorite garden in British Columbia over the next few days. You might find it an interesting comparison -- and, of course, it's a different season.

  19. Such a beautiful place! All of the photos are very nice, and the last one is my favorite. Why, oh why do people feel the need to climb all over things? I know we are all tourists at times, but still...
