TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ Wittunga Botanical Gardens

Adelaide has three Botanical Gardens, the oldest in the CBD
of Adelaide, the mountain gardens at Mt.Lofty and the third
within the southern suburbs is Wittunga.

As you enter the gardens and nose into your parking spot,
you are greeted with this view of a magnificent pink
Callistemon in full bloom.

At present the gardens are filled with colour whichever way
you look.

There are many shady paths to wander and enjoy and green
lawns to picnic on, ducks to feed on the pond or grazing on
the lawns. A very people friendly place with all paths
negotiable by wheel chairs.

My camera and I spent a happy hour there last week.

All photos are best enlarged.

Thanks to all the happy flower people at TODAY'S FLOWERS
who host this meme we can smell the roses all around the world.

  8. Arija, such a delightful place to spend time in surrounded by the colors and fragrances. Seems a good year for flowers.

  9. Very lovely Arija. Would you believe that one the places that we call a botanical garden here is the very famous Cavehill Cemetery. They grow flowers, shrubs and trees there that sometimes do not even grow in a five state area. Your place looks just splendid~

  10. What a beautiful place. Your photos of it are stunning.


  11. In Hawaii, those hot pink ice plant flowers are called, 'akulele'. The buds are strung together for leis and often you see the leis of these in May when they are in their peak blooming time.

  12. Oh my good heavens! SO BEAUTIFUL! Yes! I scream with delight. Ah. I love flowers. I shall settle for a vase of roses. Everything looks so boring right now. The flowers have fallen...soon the leaves will follow. Have a beautiful week my dearest Arija! Tsup!

  13. Beautiful garden with beautiful flowers!
