Met marvelous painter Charlotte Thodey at the pyramid that houses tropical plants in Sydney’s botanical gardens.
Weird chattering flying foxes shelter in the botanic garden trees, considered a nuisance by some.
Heliconias, orchids of miniscule to generous size, rubber trees, ferns, jasmine displayed in several glassed spaces.
The gardens extend to the harbour area, a vast miracle of downtown oasis in a city where real estateis premium.
Maps of Antarctica and the history of exploration of Australia’s “Down Under” — the southern polar continent was on view at the State Library of New South Wales across from the gardens, so that’s where I spent the rest of the afternoon.
One thought on “Sydney Botanic Gardens”
Peat, wow! I just visited Charlotte Thodey’s webpage, what stunning paintings!
