Botanical Gardens

A couple of weekends ago my husband and I visited Birmingham’s botanical gardens for the first time.  They sadly don’t admit dogs so Tinkerbell couldn’t come with us. 

Like many botanical gardens I imagine have, Birmingham has a couple of climate specific gardens before entering stunning landscaped gardens which display plants which are adaptable to the British weather. 

This flower reminded of a dinosaur.

The leaves of this I believe was a banana plant are completely unreal.

The Japanese garden was peaceful and had an incredible collection of bonsai trees which were morning like the tiny table top plants I’m used to seeing in the garden centre.

Outside in the midst of the gorgeous gardens housed an Avery.

It was lovely to view the birds closely and I didn’t realise that peacocks and peahens could fly to sit on a raised branch however it was upsetting that such beautiful birds spend their time locked up unable to enjoy their wings. 

We took time to walk around since of the most beautiful flowers and plants before stopping for lunch in the pavilion tea rooms and continuing our discovery of the delightful display of colour.

I liked very much this twisted tree trunk.

The butterfly green house was magical watching all the butterfly’s enjoying the warm heat and flowers.

Watching butterfly’s entering into this world was a moment to enjoy.

Happy Sunday Friends!
