Botanical Gardens

With all the visitors I am not getting much Wayfaring done at the moment so will explore a little more of Sydney before moving onto new places.

The Botanical Gardens have a spectacular location by the sparkling habour, right where the great city of Sydney started.

From Flower Poem by A.D. Hope
"Not this cut flower but the entire plant
Achieves its miracle from soil and wind,
Rooted in dung, dirt,dead men's bones; the scent
And glory not in themselves an end; the end:
Fresh seeding in some other dirty mind,
The ache of its mysterious event"
