Yesterday we had a guided walk at the Botanic Gardens for the Friends group, followed by a BBQ lunch. We decided to go ahead regardless of the weather, but were favoured with a very pleasant day. The photo above is one of the waterfall features which I love.
The Gardens cafe has exposed beams under the roof of the deck, which the local wildlife likes to take advantage of, quite undeterred by the cafe patrons below.
These photos are back to front, the top is a closeup of the possum sleeping high up in the rafters, he/she is the tiny speck above and to the right of the column in the lower photo.
The python slept on while everyone was taking photos and trying to zoom cameras on their phones etc to get a closeup!
Our congea is in full flower again and the grey and gloomy days really show up the dusky pink flowers. I don't know what has happened to the weather - July is supposed to be cold and dry, but it is wet and positively hot! I am back to a T-shirt and shorts. This is ridiculous. Supposedly a strong southerly is about to blow the cold weather back again, I just hope it blows the rain away. Our airport was closed for almost two days causing total chaos for travellers. Thank goodness we are not planning on going anywhere.
