Beautiful plants in the great garden of Mother Earth

No man can ever compete with, or surpass the beauty which Nature creates around us. Whether it will be the coloration of the leopard, the smell of spring flowers or the shades of the chameleon, every single touch to its creations leaves me breathless.

Besides the great gardening skills I happen to possess, another great passion of mine is to travel and capture the sights around me. Usually, when I'm outside of my house, I discover so much beauty, even in the smallest things and hidden places. I cannot spend a trip without at least fifty pictures taken each day.

I've been traveling a lot and I've seen so many places in Australia, not to mention the area around Sydney - I know it like the palm of my hand. I love the city, but I love the region around it more. I would never presume to belittle the beauty of Sydney's botanic gardens, with their diversity of species combined in such a stylish, yet carefree way. To be honest, I've never liked gardens with trees planted in straight rows. It looks fake to me.

Anyway, getting back to the main topic. The plants on the pictures you see above are shooted during a recent trip of me and hubby to Geelong and a few other locations near it. It was such an amazing experience that day, we explored the Geelong seaside, watched the birds fly above the ocean, and inhaled the fresh ocean breeze with the full capacity of our lungs. I've selected just a few of my pictures, which are numerous like a mentioned before. I hope you like them and I will post more of my experience and relationship with nature as soon as I find some free time during the rest of the month.

Have a great day, guys!
