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.

Musing:
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"
