ABC Wednesday - N is for Nature

Last Thursday was Teacher's Day here. I topok Lucas to Petropolis Imperial Museum's garden. It's a gorgeous place where I used to go when a teenager, to read my books, enjoying the almighty Nature surrounding me.

Lucas adored the place, and took several beautiful photos of many plants and flowers (now he says he wants to be a soccer player AND a botanic photographer!). Here are some of my favorite ones:

One of the paths in the area:

Anther path... Imagining those old guys walking around here...

He found these curious flowers, I just don't know what they are?

This ancient palm tree under a six-year-old perspective:

Congratulations, Lucas!
I love the strange flowers and the ancient palm tree!
The photo of the God Apollo was gorgeous, too.

Those are beautiful photos! Makes me want to hop on a plane out of this city just to take in the peacefulness.

What a lovely place Nydia. Lucas did so well with those photos, particularly the palm tree - I love the way he caught the patterns in that one.

By the way, I'm also visiting as a Team member, to thank you for posting this week. Maybe I should have visited twice? ;)

Your little witch definitely has an eye for photography!
