This month, since #TreeSquares is over I decided to post to Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD). Like Becky B, Cee offers us the freedom to post every day or when we feel like it. I made the mistake of classifying my trees as flowers for about half the month last month. So this month – no trees. (maybe). Cee’s FOTD challenge accepts:
- Single flowers
- Multiple flowers
- Flower fields
- Tree or bush blossoms
- Autumn leaves
- Spring leaves
- Decorative Cabbage
- Still life
- Fake or Silk Flowers
As I swirled through my forested universe last month for Becky’s TreeSquares, I came in touch again with my Australian trip. This month I’ll revisit only the flowers I photographed in Ballarat, Melbourne, Healesville Sanctuary and Queensland. Sometimes I might combine my post with another challenge I am doing, but I may just post one photo a day. I’ve never done that, so I’ll see how it goes.
Melbourne’s Treasury Garden
If you love orange, then the Treasury Gardens were the place to be when I visited Melbourne in 2017.
The Treasury Gardens comprised of 14 acres located in the Central Business area get their name from the Old Treasury Building they overlook. Never did a treasury look so rich as it does in this garden. These Gardens are part of a much larger area of Gardens including the Fitzroy Gardens with the Fairy Tree and the Miniature Tudor Village. The Gardens were laid out in 1867 by naturalist, Clement Hodgkinson, when vast amounts of property did not sell due to it’s swampiness.
