Brisbame River City View

Day Five 7 -Day Nature Challenge

Day Five of the 7-Day Nature Challenge (nominated by lovely Laura from The View From My Window)

In between city appointments today I took the opportunity to photograph nature in Brisbane’s Central Business District.

Here in the City Botanic Gardens not far from the Margaret Street entrance I came upon this pond complete with resting water dragon.

A water dragon at one with the pond

Soon after I met this friendly water dragon, his eyes following me as I cautiously circled him. I think his name is Pedro…

Nearly fell into the pond when I saw this

Margaret Street side of the gardens – such a pretty garden 🙂

Oh and if you’re looking for your staff, I found them running past me huffing, puffing, panting, and groaning – lunchtime fitness fun 🙂

I love greenspaces ♥
