Sydney on Sunday


Today Sydney-siders head for the great outdoors.  It’s Sunday so it’s $2.50 to travel all day by bus, trains and ferries.  Ben, Ang and I went on the ferry to the Botanical Gardens then visited the Art Gallery of New South Wales to see the Tang Dynasty exhibits.

The salvias were flowering well; we found the purple and white one that I just bought for my garden.

Then back on the ferry home.

    So many treasures, Mary. Thank you for sharing the photos. I especially liked the golden kangaroo paws, as I had never heard of such a plant before.
