Green light

Apologies for my absence from the City Daily Photo Blogs for the last few days. Work got a bit on top of me, and I’ve probably only taken about 2 pictures in the last month. Work’s still on top of me, but I need some procrastination time so I’m lining up a few more pictures for this week 🙂

This weird and wonderful thing looks like it could be from a Dr Who set, but is in fact one of the many futuristic lights which light up (and presumably heat up) the Kibble Palace glasshouse at the Botanic Gardens.

Puzzling

Some more old photos, as I really need to get out more taking more pictures. This tree is in the Botanic Gardens – I don’t think it’s a Monkey Puzzle Tree as the branches seem too close together, but I have no idea what it actually is.

Oran Mor with bin

Here’s another picture of Oran Mor from the Botanic Gardens. I tried to move around to avoid the red rubbish bin, but actually I think it adds a bit to the picture 🙂

Oran Mor from the Botanics

Because of its position the only way I’ve ever managed to get the whole of Oran Mor (see last Sunday’s steeple post for a close-up) in one photo is to take it from the entrance to the Botanic Gardens, which is diagonally opposite. It was only as I was taking it that I realised just how compact Oran Mor is – with church buildings I think I expect them to be a bit longer!

New pond

When I was at the Botanics in May this pond by the Kibble Palace was still being built. Just a couple of months later it looks really well established – they obviously know what they’re doing. The road in the background is Queen Margaret Drive.

Pretty in pink

When I last took a picture of these flower beds, in May, they were full of tulips. Now the summer’s here they’re full of geraniums instead.

Gate and coat of arms

This is a detail from the wrought iron gates at the entrance to the Botanics. I’d not noticed before that the coat of arms even made it here too!

Entrance to the Botanics

This is the modest entrance to the Botanic Gardens, on the junction of Great Western Road and Queen Margaret Drive. [if you look at the photo in flickr, I have put a note of where my most recent coat-of-arms photo that I posted last week can be found]

Staying in the Botanic Gardens, here’s yet another picture of the giant ferns in the Kibble Palace.

Through the round window

This is looking up at the domed window of the Kibble Palace in the Botanic Gardens (the blue is the sky – this was taken in May, it would be a very different picture if I’d taken it this week!).

I’m offline again for a few days, but have lined up a few pictures.
