Random Photo of the Day 21: South Africa / The Gallery: Trees

Another 2 for 1: you lucky lucky people!

This is from the beautiful botanical gardens on the Western Cape, south of Cape Town, South Africa. It’s from July 2009, (their Winter, it looks even better in Spring & Summer).

It’s also my entry for this week’s Gallery, on the theme of “Trees”; again randomly selected, so again I got lucky.

Why not pop over to Tara’s Gallery at Sticky Fingers for more arboreal artistry? (click the pic):

Random Photo of the Day 6: A Big Frog

OK, so where do you think is? Africa? A rainforest in some far-flung country? A fancy city Aquarium?

Actually it’s from under a potted Gunnera plant in my back garden! From September 2009
