A trip to Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.

We went to see the Palm and Cycad Societies of Australia’s annual show. (OK, it was a bit of an excuse to get out of the house and take some photos).

The show was underwhelming, but we also took a quick trip to the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium (in the Gardens).

Also, many other photos were taken around the Gardens (see Seussical Succulents, Reflection and, hopefully, future posts).
