Botanical gardens and high tea

Red orchids

This morning we went to the botanical gardens for a stroll. I’m quite impressed by the jungle vegetation. Great sizes, shapes and colours – very good for photography. We also went into the orchid garden with a great variety of orchids, among them “Margaret Thatcher” and “Kofi Annan”. I kept snapping away. Atleast some of the pics turned out okay, but I do need a new lens for my D40…
After that the kids were quite tired, so the others went back home and Gitta and I continued around the gardens, to a lake with swans and water lilies, a magnolia garden and a great liane path with big impressive trees.

High tea at Goodwood Park

In the afternoon we went to Goodwood park for high tea. They had a great variety of food and cakes, and the oolong tea was excellent. Yum!
Now it’s time for relaxing a while before heading to the night zoo. A great day.

    Hope you WILL be blogging more. I follow it (though don’t comment much) and am always glad to see your ‘mood’ up.

    (What is Swedish for ‘mood’?)

    athenius: Good to hear from you. Yep, I’m back online after a motherboard failure on my travel laptop. Luckily the clever IBM repair guys at Sim Lim here in Singapore could fix it. Tomorrow we leave for Vietnam.
    The Swedish word for mood is “humör”.
