Round and round the garden

I wandered across the road to the Botanic Gardens this afternoon for vitamin D and photo taking. It's my first visit in months, partly because of our non-existent spring, but the sunshine today was splendid (my attention to re-applying sunscreen isn't so splendid...)

I saw a paddling* of teeny tiny ducklings, plenty of busy bees, a couple of caterpillars and some butterflies and moths. Also lots and lots of flowers. 

Strange bud 

One of only two poppies left in the herb garden 

Bananas in the glasshouse 

Tiny pond in the centre of a bromeliad


Munch, munch, munch  

The living and the dead


Coming in to land




*That's one of the collective nouns for ducks on water.

Very good macro photos. Seems in 2017 you will have a longer walk to get the tram to and from work, so maybe more walking to and from work.
