It was the beginning of a hot day when we went to the Lismore Botanical Garden. We have been meaning to go every time we go to the Recycling Centre or as it is commonly know, the Tip Shop. Yes great bargains are to be had from the things that people throw away. But I digress. The morning was starting to heat up but it was cool walking among the trees. There has been very low rainfall so the plants were not at the best. We will go back when the rains come and I’ll show you some of the fabulous flowers, seeds, plants and hopefully there will be lots more birds.
The Gardens are a community project and the volunteers do a fabulous job. Over four hectares have been planted with dry, subtropical and riverine rainforest species. Here is their website

All of these photos are what I saw and they have not been enhanced or changed from the original. I have a folder with quite a few images, some are unintentional and others I have kept because they say a certain something to me.
A footpath. A pity I cannot remember the exact place as I took this in 2012 I like the colours and shapes
Taken through a window at a disused hospital
This one was deliberately taken. Of course I have one with the ant in focus drinking but kept this photo as it has so much to see
