Well we took a tram to the Royal Botanic Gardens today and I was in my element. We only covered half the gardens so it will mean more opportunities for next time.
There are some amazing blooms there and I took over 300 pictures
I have about 12 to show at them moment, and for those who get through them all, there is a bonus pic of me, shot by DH in Auto I'm a little self conscious of pictures of me but I've lost heaps of weight(70 kilograms) so it was time for a progress shot.... sort of.
Anyway CC if you want, all pretty much SOOC and I am amazed at some of the colours these flowers were!
Yes, they really are THAT bright!
I just Loved how perfect this bloom was!!!
Oh can you believe this amazing flower!
Another flower I fell in love with
So here is the bonus pic of me.... lol

WOW! You certainly WERE in your element!
These are so amazing I can't even pick a favorite. Every time I try, another grabs my attention.
It must have been really inspiring to be in the gardens. I can't wait to see more from your next visit!
LOVE these! You WERE in your element! The colors and focus are great! Love the one of you and DH! He does look like tons of fun, and CONGRATS on your weightloss!
I can't pick a fav. Your pics are always amazing. Seriously.
Thanks again. Hubby was laughing at me a lot, every time we turned a corner there were more flowers and he thought I was hilarious at how excited I was
those are beautiful! the white perfect bloom is my favorite, just so lovely! and it's great to see you (and I have to tell you that I saw Cheap Trick in concert back in the day, probably about 18 years ago!). your DH looks like a riot (in a good way).
