The prompt for The Sunday Stills Photo Challenge this week is Dry. Terri from Second Wind Leisure hosts #SundayStills, with a different prompt for each week. . I’m not a photographer but I thought I’d just give it a go. I find this photo challenge opens my eyes to my surroundings, as I think about the prompt for the week ahead. This week, I planned my walking route around Bendigo’s amazing and beautiful Garden For The Future as I knew the photos would be perfect to demonstrate dry.
“The Garden for the Future is a 3ha contemporary extension of the historic Bendigo Botanic Gardens, in regional Victoria, Australia. It is the first built stage within an ambitious masterplan for the expansion of the Gardens. As part of this project the City of Greater Bendigo identified that it was important to celebrate the cultural identity of Bendigo, to respond to and lead the community in an era of climate change and create a beautiful, engaging and adaptable contemporary garden. The Garden for the Future includes 30,000 climate-resilient plants from over 500 Australian and exotic species sought from areas of the world that currently experience similar rainfall patterns and temperature variability to those projected for Bendigo in the next fifty years. The garden also contains a stage and sculptural grassed amphitheatre for outdoor performances and cinema, new architecturally designed facilities, and several gathering spaces for weddings and corporate functions. The central lawn is framed by a promenade that will host markets and events”. – landezine-award.com/bendigo
I love Bendigo’s Garden for the Future, and often enjoy walking through it, while checking out the progress and growth of the drought tolerant plants that are planted here. You might think that a dry garden would be boring. This garden is very colourful and definitely not boring. This garden gives inspiration for drought tolerant garden which is becoming necessary.
