My Ballarat

 Yesterday I went for a lovely walk in the local Botanical Gardens.
 I am always delighted at just how beautiful they are.  A lot of work goes into maintaining them, and I really should walk through there more often.
 My main motive was to look inside their glass house, and see what they had growing in there.  I thought it would give me some ideas for mine.

 It is a magnificent structure in the gardens and it was just lovely inside.  I sat on the comfy chairs for awhile just 'drinking' it all in.
 I have water Lillie plants in my garden fish pond, but I have never been lucky enough to get a flower.  These were just beautiful.

 The sun was shining, and the band was playing music in the park across the road.  It made for a very pleasant afternoon in the gardens.

I think I'll go back again another day.

Such a beautiful garden, Annie - I don't go there nearly often enough but love strolling around admiring the plants. We always take visitors there..

Lovely photos Annie. I have been walking round the lake almost every day but bypass the gardens. Maybe I should make a little diversion.

A lot of snow ,rain ,ice and very cold.

Oh, Annie, it is just gorgeous! I don't know why we don't take better advantage of the beautiful things right in our own town. But we are all guilty. Thank you for sharing!

Lovely to see just beautiful flowers in the middle of winter. A little ray of hope in the midst of snow! Thanks for that.
