The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens reopened this week as lockdown restrictions begin to ease. Only outside areas were open “for exercise”. The shop, café and kiosk were closed. Also the Conservatory and Antarctic House.

It was a perfect autumn day to visit. Feet of all sizes had fun scrunching through the fallen leaves.

I joined lots of people for a delightful walk around the gardens. Everyone was sensible and respectful, keeping social distance, waiting to pass on narrow paths and bridges over the lake.

It was pleasing to see the autumn colours.

Many of the maples in the Japanese Garden have finished their display. There were a few still putting on a show.

Also to see what is happening in “The Patch”, as seen on Gardening Australia. Local charities maintain some beds.
