As I had a lot of time to fill in while Tess was working at Northlakes Shopping Centre I invited Tess and the boys to come with me to the botanical gardens as I had never been there. It was a freezing day (by our standards anyway), first we drove up to Mt Coot-tha Lookout there was a quaint little coffee shop up there so a warm drink and something to eat was the first order of the day. Some of these photo’s were taken by Tess including the one’s of the duck and bird, I love the detail in those.
After morning tea we headed down the road the botanical gardens.
Loved this roof. This was the tropical garden section
I thought the gardens looked a little tired but then it is winter (not our rainy season) and Brisbane is very strict with water usage Tess and I are definitely going back in spring I think it will look spectacular.
Between the two of us we were able to get some lovely photo’s of Lucy without her “my space” expressions which was really great. We had a lovely day, we will have to do some more of these day trips over the Christmas school holidays.
