|"Marie Rudling" - Regal Pelargonium|
My last visit to Adelaide Botanical gardens was on my very first trip to Australia in 1988. When my sister suggested a visit there on my recent trip I readily agreed. I can't say I remember very much about it, but one or two places seemed familiar. Our main reason for visiting was to see the Wisteria Arch which was in full flower. I hope you agree, it did look magnificent.
The Water Lily House
I remember this glass monument made from sheets of glass and situated in front of the large tropical glasshouse
The tropical Glasshouse. I was quite disappointed in this, but perhaps I was there at the wrong time of year.
This is Grevillea "Peaches and Cream" growing outside the glasshouse

This wrought iron arbour was erected in memory of Elvis Presley
I loved the bark on this tree
I couldn't resist a couple of photo's of the bark
