Friday’s Thought – On Expanding Horizons

Tropical flowers in the Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens

“The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.”

(Ralph W. Sockman)


    • Thanks, Rita. I photographed that flower and its leaves in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney. I don’t actually know what kind of flower it is – sort of looks like a tropical Iris to me, but I could be wrong.

      With the oddly warm weather we’re having in NYC this winter I’m a bit at a loss when it comes to photographing nature. We’re no longer in Fall, but it doesn’t look very wintry out either. Sigh.

      Thanks for continuing to read my posts! 🙂 Joana

      • Go indoors and photograph all the decorated trees and wreaths. That’s what I’m doing in SF. No winter here to speak of.

        • That’s what I’m planning to do! In fact, I’ll probably start with our tree which will go up tomorrow… 🙂

          The trees in the lobbies of the fancy office and apartment buildings around the city ARE pretty. I bet they’re lovely in San Francisco, too.

          🙂 Joana
