Many thanks to everyone who takes the time to view, fave and comment on my photos - VERY MUCH APPRECIATED !!!!!!

I found this hidden-away garden corner at Royal Botanical Gardens, Burlington, Ontario. Of course, it's not a secret anymore:)

Have a great week!

This is a winter garden from a month ago.

It doesn't even look like winter, more like your summer in August.

 

We're upside-down people and parrot in down-under world, so everything is confusing.

Thank you and i appreciate your visit and comments my friends .

Brisbane, Queensland

Designed by Isabel & Julian Bannerman, The Collector Earl's Garden includes domed pergolas of weathered oak, and fountains inspired by the garden vista in the famous Mytens portrait of the Countess of Arundel.

 

The grand centrepiece is the rockwork 'mountain' planted with palms and rare ferns to represent another world, supporting a weathered oak version of 'Oberon's Palace'; a fantastic spectacle designed by Inigo Jones. This contains a shell-lined interior with a stalagmite fountain and gilded coronet 'dancing' on top of the jet. from gardenstovisit.com

An early rhododendron was displaying near the gardens bridge.

I enjoy photographing the red bridge in the many different lights that filter through the woods at Sarah Duke gardens.

Auckland Botanic Gardens

African Plants Garden

Splashes of colour throughout the year

 

Visit the wilds of Africa... in Auckland

Visit the African Plants Garden in winter alongside flocks of noisy silvereye and tui feeding on the vivid aloe and protea flowers. Come again in spring for the explosion of bulbs – the Cape is the bulb capital of the world– but you can get a taste of Africa right here at Auckland Botanic Gardens. Imagine elephants and giraffe wandering by, grazing on trees like the Acacia sieberiana. With its dry herbal scents, unusual plants and busy birds there is something stimulating for all the senses in this garden.

 

Leucodendrons, proteas, watsonias, daises, nerines, strelitzias, freesias, gladiolus, gerberas – many plant species common to our gardens or florist shops have their origins in southern Africa. The Cape Floral Kingdom alone has a staggering 9,000 species of native plants (in comparison, New Zealand is 3 times larger and has 2,400 native species). The Cape lies on the same latitude as New Zealand and like us, has wet winters and dry summers. Most of these plants are self-sustaining – they don’t require much water and perform well in poor soils - perfect distinctive yet low-maintenance

I don't usually works with textures, but for once I thought I would try it out - because this does look like the perfect motif for a water-colour painting, and the original was... not really presentable anyway (the light was quite troublesome to work with - very bright but not sunny).

 

This is the great reception hall at Shibamata Taishakuten, a Buddhist temple, set in a traditional Japanese garden. You actually walk round the garden on a covered walkway of wood - you leave your shoes at the entrance and walk in your socks (as a Swede I am quite familiar to the concept of not wearing shoes indoors, but this was a new experience even for me). A very contemplative and beautiful place. The garden was created in 1965, and the reception hall dates to 1929.

 

Shibamata Taishakuten was founded in 1629 - but the buildings in the area are generally from the early 20th century. The inner shrine of the Taishakudo (Taishaku temple hall) was finished in 1915 and the hall of worship 1929. The temple is centred around the worship of Taishakuten (sometimes called just Taishaku - written 帝釈天 or 帝釈 respectively), the Japanese name for Sakra devanam Indra (that is, the god Indra, known from Hinduism).
