I read a lot of blogs.

Some are gorgeously superficial. Pretty, sparkly nail polish, or cupcakes that, while I can’t eat them, look awesome.

Others are deep.

Discussion of emotions, physical and mental pain.

And while I love those people.

I just sometimes can’t read that stuff.

For my own sake.

So I step back. And stick with the pretty flowers for a while.

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….
