Park hopping

The weather’s getting cooler here, proof that autumn is really here. I’ve often seen great photos featuring trees and fallen leaves taken during autumn so I thought that it would be a great opportunity to take some photos of my own. We went to Flagstaff Gardens last week, thinking that surely the park’s trees would be shedding their leaves by now. Boy, was I wrong. There were no fallen leaves in sight and there is only lushness and green everywhere. You’d be forgiven if you think that this photo was taken at the height of summer.

Today we went to an area near the city called King’s Domain. There were 3 parks in the area – King’s Domain Gardens, Queen Victoria Gardens and Alexandra Gardens. This time we were successful. Leaves are falling everywhere and we snapped away. Numerous sculptures dot the park and there were people walking, jogging and biking everywhere, there was even a lady doing yoga on a mat of leaves. It was very tranquil and all the stresses of the day simply falls away.

Anyway, it’s good to go park hopping this time instead of being mallrats as we’re wont to be. No worries though, there’s still a lot of parks and gardens around Melbourne to discover and explore.
