Lens-Artist Photo Challenge : Cooling

It is about 15 years ago that I went with the garden club I belonged to at that time, on a bus trip, for a days outing to the “Queensland Garden Expo”. I have fond memories of display gardens, talks by various experts on all things gardening, lots of plants for sale. A long, happy day spent with like-minded friends.

This weekend it was on again and I was looking forward to going.

But this time we were driving. It was just over a 2 hour drive north to Nambour, add another 20 minutes driving around the near-by streets looking for parking. Finally we walked into the expo site with thousands of other people. I’m still processing the photos and my thoughts so there will be more to come, but today I would like to share just a snippet with you of one of the small display gardens.

It is soothing and relaxing to be near water.cool (3 of 3)_5184x3888It creates a tranquil oasis of palms and ferns, the rocks cushioned with moss. Just looking at it I could imagine how cooling it would be in the hot, humid summer.
