Australian native violet
About to leave the gardens now and walking towards the roadway further up
An interesting tower on Wendy Whitely's home. Imagine the views from up top; those we've seen in earlier posts.
From the other side of the pathway/steps; it's looking like a bunch of bananas in the making,
and the wondrous supportive network to intruiging trunks on the Ficus' (more than likely Port Jackson figs). Buttress roots come down from upper branches in search of nutrients and ultimately form this buttressing effect. Port Jackson is the original European name given to Sydney Harbour.
we make it to the Kirribilli Club for lunch, without getting wet. Not so brave as the couple sitting outdoors, we opted for a view from the other side of the glass, alongwith many others. By the time we were leaving, the heavens opened up along with gusty winds.
