Barking up the Tree: Textures of the Royal Botanic Garden (Melbourne, VIC)


The Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne is one of the finest in the world, an easy walk across the Princes Bridge from Federation Square. This being nearly the third week into autumn, most all the flower blossoms were spent. Still, there was much to admire here. As you would imagine, there were many native trees of Australia on the grounds. What struck me were their wondrous bark patterns.
