Fun with macro-mode in the Botanical Gardens
As noted earlier, the Botanical Gardens are one of my favorite things in Sydney. Anyone who knows how much I love the greenhouse at Mizzou, wouldn’t be surprised to know I went to the gardens twice in a few days. There are still areas I haven’t seen.
The cool thing about gardens is the fluidity. Every time you go, something new has bloomed.
That flower is kinda funky, but not as strange as these.
They grow in the water and look like something out of Alice and Wonderland. The way they blossom makes me think of one of those toys you push Play-Doh through to make little florets.
Once they flower though, they’re really pretty.
