Red Garden at Cranbourne

Our Winter days have been riddled with rain, but at the first sign of sun, in spite of icy winds, I was out.
That was yesterday.
I have not visited the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens for more than a year.
(They are officially known as the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne.)
It was time to return.
The gardens are a showcase of features in the Australian environment.
(And still evolving! The gardens only opened to the public in 1989!)
Near the entrance is this view of the Red Sands Garden, representing views of Central Australia.

World of a garden
The spirit of life is here
Inhale the wonder

Here is another view.

The above two photos show perspectives the ephemeral lakes sculpture in the Red Sands Garden.
The gardens aim to capture the spirit of all that is Australia.

The gardens look pretty and green considering it's the middle of winter.

Hard to think of you in winter as we are in such a hot dry summer as I guess you have also. The sands are striking. I have never seen sand that color. It is nice to take pride in what you have and to showcase it in the best way possible. Thank you so much for linking into Nature Notes.. it is always appreciated..Michelle

I think the Red Sands Gardens are wonderful Gemma you couldn't help but think of Australia when you see these scenes.
