Botanic Gardens



Welcome for a quick visit to Belfast's Botanic gardens which we visited last August.

The Victorian Glass house is a marvel of Victorian architecture.


Sorry about the crane in the background, however the red brick buildings are part of Queen's University


The dome is wonderful and the detail in the metalwork around the entrance was fantastic.



Inside and a huge palm tree (I think)


An exotic bloom...



Linking with Our World Tuesday

Tuesday's Treasure

Thanks to our hosts and many thanks for your visit and all who comment.

Have a great day!

  2. The glass house is amazing indeed. I don't know the exotic flower but those white and pink ones look like Cleome hassleriana, annuals here in Finland. Great visit!

  4. Looks like a lovely place! Thank you for sharing your photos. The gardens are beautiful. For a few years the Des Moines Fall Classic (chess tournament) was held at the Des Moines Botanical gardens, and chess players had free entry to roam the beautiful gardens at will during the tournament...it was always so beautiful and refreshing in the heart of winter.

  13. Wonderful structure. The photos with the flowers are so welcoming. It reminds me of the flower conservatory at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. I'm visiting from Tuesday's Treasures.
