It was a beautiful day in Melbourne on Monday, Mum, myself and a friend had planned to go to the botanic gardens. We wanted to see the volcano and the plants around it. The volcano is called Guilfoyle’s Volcano, built in 1876 by William Guilfolye, which was used to store water for the botanic gardens. After lying idle for 60 years, it has been restored with a path winding to the crater lake and a water resistant garden full of cacti and succulents. The plantings are startling and it gives a weird effect of a planted moonscape. The red areas represent the lava flows.. It is absolutely stunning, full of beautifully weird looking cacti and flowers for me to photograph.
We also walked to one of the lakes for lunch, and discovered the most beautiful and huge water lilies which were flowering. I have added quite a few of the photos to this blog. I apologise as there are a few as I couldn't decide which ones to upload. Enjoy :)
