THE SYDNEY ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS
If you saw my post on The Grounds of Alexandria, you already know about my love for Sydney and the reasons why. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that I wanted to share more pictures with you: this time from The Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens.
The Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens is an absolutely gorgeous place. It’s the oldest botanic garden in Australia, and in my opinion, the loveliest. There’s something about it being surrounded by water that I just adore. I stopped to take photos at every opportunity, because there was always something lovely to look at no matter which way I went.
Also, I wanted to point out that because the land is so huge, it never felt overcrowded or busy, even though it’s obviously a very popular area. This is important for me, because I hate to feel claustrophobic due to just the sheer amount of people at some places. The last garden I visited had so many people, sometimes it was impossible to get past certain areas until everybody had left – eugh. (Don’t I just sound like the loveliest person right now?)
I’m honestly trying to not make this too picture-heavy for you guys, but it’s so hard when it was such a beautiful day. This kind of weather is my absolute favourite: sunny and bright, but not too hot that you feel like melting into a puddle on the foot path. I’ve always thought that it’s impossible to be in a bad mood on days like this, and I stick by that (I mean, within reason of course! Haha.) Seriously, if you need to ask me for a ridiculous favour, wait until the sun’s shining – I won’t be able to say no!
Of course, it’s just like John to try and befriend & feed a magpie…!!! To be fair, he gets a free pass from being Canadian & not understanding the extent of damage these demon birds can do. At least it wasn’t swooping season.
What’s your favourite type of tree? Mine’s palm trees – can you tell? Haha. I love driving down roads that have an abundance of palm trees, there’s something about them that I find so calming and nice. Even as a kid playing The Sims, I would surround any houses I built with a ridiculous amount of palm trees (unless I was making a family to mess with, because obviously they didn’t deserve them… joking… sort of…)
I hope you guys liked this post, and if you have any botanic gardens where you live, I’d love to see pics! I have a lot more photos to share with you, so I might make a part 2 to the post. Let me know if it’s something you’d be interested in seeing! 💙
