I can’t help lingering over windows, especially when they come in the form of a delightful Regency era Palm House. (The Regency era is the period between 1811 and 1820 when King George III was deemed unfit to rule and his son, the Prince of Wales, ruled as his proxy as Prince Regent. In 1820 the Prince Regent became George IV)
You’ll find this little beauty in the Bicton Park Botanical Gardens in East Devon, as well as acres of landscaped gardens to walk around.

Botanical gardens are always a delight, and this one, from the look of it, no less.
No doubt, you’ll visit the one in sydney: http://www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/welcome/royal_botanic_garden
I do like a palm house – and one of the best I’ve been to is at Kew Gardens. The first one I would have been to is at Glasgow’s Botanical Gardens – quite small really, but still good to walk round.
Very interesting – I’ve not heard of the Regency Era before. The building reminds me of the top of a giant bullet – or space ship.
It looks like a great place to visit 🙂
That last photo is a beauty with that glass dome surrounded by plants.
If you go to the Blue Mountains Jude I can strongly recommend a visit to Norman Lindsay museum and gardens. http://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Attraction_Review-g504246-d2294667-Reviews-Norman_Lindsay_Gallery_Museum-Faulconbridge_New_South_Wales.html
Duly noted! I think I need at least 6 months to accomplish everything I want to see and that is just around Sydney! I think the trips to Oz are going to have to increase 🙂
Yes you definitely need more time over here Jude. I’m looking forward to reading your posts about your Oz experience.
Well isn’t that the coolest place!
