I adored the parks and gardens in Tasmania.
I guess being Spring made them pretty good.
We spent a fair bit of time in parks as the kids were practising their cracking.
This is city park in Launceston.
They had a very beautiful conservatory.
filled with orchids.
The fellow was in there tending to them.
Catmint and poppies, i think!
I didn't even realise on the first visit that behind here was a heap of monkeys.
Mackaws from Japan.
I couldn't work out wht these cages were for and then I got it- they let the fish hide from the ducks, who couldn't get to them in there!!
A youngish Oak.
I think these are rhododendrons.
A little train that dragged the kids around in it.
This bush had a fairly strong almost aniseed scent.
Clivias just like at home
This was a huge sprawling tree and I couldn't find a name tag.
the Oaks were beautiful.
The Children's fountain.
We played some chess in the park, except when I went to the toot I came back and Itty Bitty had lost 3 key pieces to his brother!
Eventually I won, even though I had to change the rules at the end to cease the stalemate.
Below was the front garden of the B& B we stayed at.
I told him I saw a moving shadow in my room the first night.
He got a bit freaked!
