Weekend Flowers: Brisbane Botanic Gardens

I feel honoured to have placed second in Tina's weekend flowers last week. Thank you Tina for hosting.
I hadn't photographed any flowers this week until yesterday when we visited the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. We only stayed a few hours until another terrible storm hit - it's summer storm season in our tropical state. But I did manage to capture a few lovely flowers in between bird photography & a photo shoot my daughter was doing of us.

I couldn't resist the abundance of water lillies on the lagoon.



And also the few in the Tropical Display Dome. I love the reflections in this one.

Liz, these are gorgeous.
They are extra special to me since the deer ate every last one of ours last summer. Hoping for better luck this summer!

Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!
