Botanic Gardens, flowers

These flowers are located in front of the Conservatorium Gate of the Royal Botanic Gardens, close to Macquarie Street. There aren't many plants in bloom at this time of year so these bursts of colour are welcome sight.

  1. Great picture, wonderful colours. I'm not good on plants - are the red ones what we'd call 'red hot pokers'?

  3. These types of botanic gardens haven't changed much in decades Jim. I have childhood memories of gardens just like these. They are reassuringly beautiful.
