Trees go Vivid

During the light festival Vivid, not only are there installations in The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney but some of the garden’s trees are also lit up. It gives an entirely new perspective!

“I bite!”

It’s tempting to poke one, despite the warning!

The Royal Botanic Gardens has a free display called “Plants with Bite” in the Calyx building. If you’re in Sydney while it’s on, it’s well worth a visit. These plants are not what most people would call attractive, but they’re certainly impressive. There’s even a feeding time session, which I wasn’t aware of, and although it seems aimed at children I think it would be fascinating.

Pity the poor fly caught in this trap.

Once inside this Hanging Pitcher Plant, you’d never escape.

Spooky and menacing with the mist.
