The Botanical Gardens are up in the hills above Funchal. They are justly famous, and as you can imagine I took a LOT of flower pics. They’ll appear on my blog in due course, but I thought I’d give you a flavour of the place.
There’s lots of shade and shadow, which I enjoyed.
The cacti in a sheltered part of the garden, reminded me of the collection in Barbara Hepworth’s Sculpture Garden (a place I love).
This dangly item reminded me of one of SueC‘s paintings.
This was inspired planting!
