It was a fresh minus 3 degrees this morning with a rather heavy fog. While the temptation to stay snuggled up in bed was great...the boys' desire to go exploring was greater, so we layered up and headed to the other side of the lake to the National Botanic Gardens. Prime exploration location according to the Preschooler!
We armed ourselves with hot coffee and aptly named snacks
and let the boys lead the way through the mist.
It was so peaceful, quiet, still...
I never used to appreciate how beautiful the Australian bush was. When I was younger I generally deemed it a harsh, drab, unflattering landscape. But the botanic gardens really showcase the immense array of colours and textures of our natives and as an adult I now see their beauty.
