|It was a beautiful day|
I only had time for a quick walk about the gardens before lunch.
|The hydrangeas were pretty much done.|
|The skinks were cool though.|
|Possibly Yellow-bellied Water Skinks|
|Sadly the only parrot I saw|
|King Protea. Protea cyanoroides.|
Mount Tomah is a botanic gardens in the lower Blue Mountains west of Sydney. It's at 1000 metres, and sits atop a basalt peak. They have a great restaurant, Tomah Gardens Restaurant, run by Sean Moran from Sean's Panorama at Bondi, it's worth the stop alone.

I'm, of course, a fan of all-things-Australian, so I'm happy you took me along on this little visit. The dahlias are stunning. And it always makes me smile to see a skink; Lizzie, my blue-tongued skink, is fifteen years old this year.
Like you, Louise, I drive by here so often but have only ever visited once, way too briefly.
You have now whet my appetite for more :-)
These are beautiful shots! And they are a perfect example of why we should "stop and smell the flowers" more often. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
Lovely photos (especially when viewed full screen). I'd like to sit by the water feature and drink in the serenity. Now I'm wondering about the small public garden I drive by often. You've inspired me to stop and take a stroll.
Thank you for visiting my blog today.
Oh wow, this looks beautiful. Great pictures ..
I've never seen a skink in real-life. I think I would be startled to see one. The garden was lovely. My snapshot Saturday
What an amazing collection of photos. I really like those treeferns, and the skink of course.
