Last Tuesday we started a walk through THE QUEENS GARDENS IN TOWNSVILLE. There was still much more to see in the botanical garden so this Tuesday we’re back.
Big Bad Boys
Under the shade of the giants is a chaotic understorey. I christened the pathway beneath “Ginger Alley”.
The Flowers of Ginger Alley
Near the fountain that sometimes works you can find:
A Sunny Bench by the “Fountain”.
View through a leafy window.
Children love exploring the hidden corners of the garden, so pick up a picnic lunch from the nearby supermarket, pack the insect repellent and sunscreen and head for the Queens Gardens.
It is Autumn in Townsville, but being in the tropics we do not get the four seasons. Instead we have the “Wet” which is summer and the “Dry” which is winter. Townsville has it’s own microclimate happening which makes it even more confusing. It is warm year round and most of our rain comes comes between November and April, but it is very hit and miss. Our weather today could be Spring weather in the northern hemisphere.
In the spirit of Spring this post is linked to TRAVELING WITH SWEENEY’S SPRING THEMED POST.
