A walk in the Melbourne Botanical Gardens

Happy Cactus Monday.

The sun came out and it was a little warmer one day last week. I decided to go for a walk in the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Here are a few of photos I managed before it got cold again, and I abandoned my walk and left.

Looking towards the city – it was cloudy.

Wow that's a lot of cactus! And I find cactus beautiful too. I had what they call Christmas cactus that blooms in Christmas time and it doesn't need a lot of water sometimes I even forget to put water for weeks but still it's growing and seldom withers. Happy Monday!

What a treasure to have so near you. That skycap photo is so neat, very moody.
