Two great things Poetix saw

Poetix

Poetix sent us a couple of shots from the National Botanic Gardens:

Here’s something I never thought to see in Canberra: Sturt’s Desert Pea. Photo taken on my phone at the National Botanic Gardens in the new Central Australian area up past the lawns.

If you don’t like lizards, don’t go at the moment. There were thousand of them sunning themselves like retirees in Queensland. There’s also a sculpture of a Thorny Devil, for even more lizard excellence.

That should be thousands, not thousand. I admire Barcham’s restraint in not correcting me.

I grew one to seed whilst living in Sydney one spring. An extremely hard lady to grow in humidity, plus get the amount of watering incorrect and it rots. But. whilst flowering, there is a beautiful sugary nectar in them.

Very nice pics. I really like that sculpture. I’ve often seen quite a few water dragons at the Gardens but when I was there recently there were a LOT, I was almost literally tripping over them.

astromonkey and astrochicken both very much enjoyed the red centre garden, and in particular the thorny devil – a beautiful sight, desert plants in flower; i have seen them in their native habitat but not to a point of boisterous show, so a delight to see the pea in bloom. i got some nice ones on my phcamra too – i like a good filter…
