A day at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney ~ the little lioness

A day at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney

Royal Botanic Gardens with Rish

What better way to spend a magnificent Sydney day?

Our plan for Saturday was to head to Circular Quay and hop on a ferry to Manly. Maybe have a picnic, some wine…

But on our way from Martin Place, where we hopped off the train, we wandered past some old buildings, and found ourselves at the Royal Botanic Gardens. A reasonable sized park in which to spend the day ;)

I suggested we take our shoes off an walk on the grass. A wonderful sensory experience! (I don’t recommend it on the hot bitumen though!!!)

Some amazing colours! None of which I captured as well as I’d like. Still adjusting to the camera on the Sony Xperia Arc I’m trialling….

Into the herb garden, I was surprised to learn the shapes of some of the plants!

    Was the camera lens covered in grime to make the pics that hazy, or is the camera just like that?
