The botanical garden is just up the street from me, and is a lovely place for a walk or a run. There are always families, couples and people walking their dogs through the winding paths.
Not only does it house some lovely gardens (although they probably look much more glorious in spring and summer), it is also home to a curious number of animals, including some fellow Australians.
Walking back to the main gate, we saw one creature that was a possible escapee. He wasn’t at all concerned about being recaptured, and was content to strut his stuff on the green carpet while we took his photo.
