Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha

A quick botanical-themed post today from a very picturesque part of my hometown, Brisbane. We have two botanical gardens, one in the inner city and one in the western suburbs at Mt Coot-tha. The one at Mt Coot-tha includes a planetarium, as well as a lookout further up the road where you can take in the whole of Brisbane from on high. I really should have taken note of the names of each plant though…

I hate spiders with a passion, but I’ve always loved it when the light hits their webs at just the right angle…
