A park for all seasons..



Following Aimee as she disappeared around each corner ahead of me felt a little like an Alice in Wonderland moment :) Araluen Botanic Park is indeed a wonderland in whichever season you visit. Right now alive with multi-coloured spring flowers.. in summer the massed beds of agapanthus and warm weather blooms kick in. In autumn the many trees in the park glow in their oranges and reds 🍂 must get back there for that shot.. in winter those same trees look magical as they shed their leaves. One more post from the park, saved for Weekend Reflections. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  1. What a great park. Good to spend time there, especially during tulip season. BTW, flooding this time of year is most unusual. Usually August and September are dry months, but not this year. Hate to think what snow might come this winter.

  9. Nothing beats a walk in a beautiful garden. Last night I watched the last episode (once again) of Monty Don's Italian Gardens on Netflix. He visited several gardens that I just saw in Italy including the one I just posted about on my travel site. And, he even visited one that I had visited on my very first trip to Italy. It was so much fun to see those places once again and pretend I was walking along with him. We are supposed to get a bit of a cool down this weekend so (fingers crossed) I can get out the garden here once again.

  16. Public parks and gardens are such special places. I am always grateful to the people who laid them out and planted the trees so many years ago. And for the people who tend to their beauty today.
