“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” ― Confucious

 I left my cardigan at the Art Gallery so went back the next day to pick it up from Lost & Found. I was early so pottered around the Botanic Gardens while I waited for it to open. 

I discovered a little corner I hadn't really noticed before, with a home to bees.

 I've walked past this part many times but purely with the objective of getting to the harbour, Botanic House or the Calyx.

We often look but don't really see what's there.

Sometimes wasting time brings new discoveries.

"The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." Marcel Proust

And lastly, we finally got a pretty sunrise - still with cloud cover but not enough to steal the colours.

  1. I imagine you were quite pleased you did leave your cardigan! Lovely pictures.

  2. Gorgeous sunrise! Many times we don’t notice beautiful things, especially near home, because everything seems too familiar. Never heard of such stingless bees!

  3. A stingless bee? Sounds good to me. I'd be pottering around there too

  4. Lovely photos of the garden and unique photo of the 'bees'. Xo

    Wishing you love and laughter in your days ~

  6. A nice serie of pictures and an interesting story

  7. These are great. I've linked in my Botanic Gardens shot.

  8. Hey, I came by on the right day - didn't know you changed the days:) I love Botanical Gardens, and will soon visit the one in Dallas (which would be the closest from Austin). Stingless bees - who knew they existed:) Have a fun weekend.

    1. There were some complaints. I'm just rolling with it.

    2. It's nothing like what you created but it is still going....

    3. And if you ever want to take back the reins, sing out!

  9. Absolutely beautiful sunrise! I've never heard of stingless bees before.

  10. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Amen Sister!!!

  11. Lovely shots, Lydia. The Botanic Gardens are a favourite of mine whenever I visit Sydney!

  12. So true that we often are too busy or focused on tasks to notice beauty.. I like the photos of the stingless bees, birds and beautiful flowers!
