What a strange otherworldly discovery we made at the Mt Cootha Botanic gardens…a little group of “terrestrial” plants looking like they were from another planet. The misting spray was watering these plants and helped create an eerie atmosphere, albeit in front of a very brick wall. All the same, I managed to imagine a mystic hidden landscape with it’s unusual colour tones. We also had a wonderful encounter with some small brown fish in the newly cleaned tropical dome pool….so lovely to touch and even pat some little water creatures….they were checking us out as food providers! The water was too reflective for a pic of that but here’s a couple of photos of the “mystic garden”.
