They have a proper name, I just don’t know it, and when I came upon them on the Yorke Peninsula, I knew they’d be right for Cee’s FOTD.
For Cee’s FOTD
A belated birthday bunch of blooms has just arrived and caught the sun in time for Cee’s Flower of the Day.
For travelwithintent’s one word Sunday.
Nestled under the lip of Mount Lofty Summit, in a suburb of the Adelaide Hills called Piccadilly, is one of the three South Australian Botanic Gardens.
There is ample parking and signage, with large and portable maps available at the gate.
There’s a variety of paths, from flat, bitumised trails to steep, beaten dirt and you usually have a clear choice so that you don’t get into trouble. It is definitely suitable for wheelchairs or those with assisted ambulance.
So many choices of views are possible and at this time of the year, some trees with colourful foliage could lure you that way, or walls of flowers.
And if you need a rest, or rest stop, there are toilets, and benches a-plenty.
While ducks are plentiful on the ground, they are also found high in the trees and you won’t have any trouble spotting a kangaroo or colourful bird.
Streams and flowers, fossils, structures and sculptures.
Come and visit for yourself. I’m sure you’ll find something of interest. It is suitable for families, groups, couples and singles and can be accessed from Adelaide City, but is easiest by car.
Take a coat and hat in winter and a hat and water in summer.
Strolling through Lofty Botanic Garden, this profuse white flower looked very familiar. The nearest tag does not produce the same bloom when I research it, so I have to say that I think it’s a lily, for Cee’s FOTD.
Please let me know the correct name, if you identify this bloom.
Nodding away from me, they’re hanging on for Cee’s FOTD.
We visited Lofty Botanic Gardens in South Australia and there were plenty of late Autumn/early Winter trees to ‘shoot’ for Becca’s Sunday tree challenge #447.
This is Aralia, looking up and looking into it.
