Flagstaff Gardens, Winter

Melbourne’s Flagstaff Gardens in Winter

Many people say that Autumn or Spring are the best seasons to see our parks and gardens.  True, the Autumn colours can look spectacular, but I also like walking through the city parks in Winter.  Without much foliage on the trees you can see all around, the city buildings become a back drop to the skeletal trees.  The grass is green from the Winter rains, with a scattering of orange and yellow leaves dancing around in the breeze.  With a little but of sunshine breaking through the clouds, I think the city parks and gardens in Winter can look just as nice as during the warmer months.

The picture above is taken in the Melbourne Flagstaff Gardens, looking towards the intersection of La Trobe and King Streets, in late June.
