Autumn Seeds

It was a lovely sunny day so we went to our local botanic gardens at Mount Annan to see how the plants were looking during Autumn. The children enjoyed looking for, and collecting, different types of seeds and berries. There were also some lovely Banksia flowers and their amazing shaped seed pods. Most of the trees in the garden are native gums which don't lose their leaves in winter so the gardens were still quite green.
