I'm curious about the first picture, I wonder what it is. Capturing an opening frond is a great piece of photography.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Nice shots. Those round cactuses always look as if they should be furry and cuddly to me... you will be glad to know I have not actually tried to cuddle them :)

Luna Miranda said...

It must be a nice place to visit. I love the curled up fern. I have them in my garden and I like watching them unfold.

Perfection! - but then you wouldn't expect anything less from a Botanic garden, would you? I think I need a team of gardeners in my garden;-)
