Out of MtLawleyShire: Kings Park #3 – Trees

The real wonder of Kings Park is not the gorgeousness of the wildflowers – the beauty of Kings Park are its trees.  I took quite a few photos, because I cannot resist trees and these are some of the most beautiful in the whole city (she says, having not really been everywhere…)

But I know some of you (and Bulldog in particular) will enjoy this post.

They are everywhere, the trees – viewed through a Victorian era tea pavilion to the city beyond

Magnificent and ancient conifers:

Trees frame the city:

Flowering bottlebrush look beautiful against massed greens

The occasional oak in new bright green is startling against the more subtle blue-grey greens of native trees:

especially in contrast with the always ancient looking peppermint trees – & this one tossing in the bright warm wind that day:

but the real beauties are the wonderful eucalypts,growing in natural settings throughout this ordered part of the park, backdrops to large lawned areas and planted areas of the Botanical gardens before the wilderness starts:

Along the edges of the cliff, framing views of the river:

and these – grown in avenues along the road to commemorate fallen soldiers:

I love the trees, and wish I could’ve got better views of the avenues of tall trunks, white in the light.  But there was very heavy traffic, people everywhere.  Maybe when the school holidays are over…

I hope you enjoyed this last post from my visit to King’s Park 🙂
