As the rest of the world rushed on I felt like I was walking in the footsteps of Ellis Rohan last week – Flower Hunting in the Cairns Botanical Gardens. A fantastic free guided tour I was amazed at the flowers out in Winter and seduced by the exhibition Sex and Death. Orchids and Carnivorous plants are certainly enticing. And so it was a week refuelling in tropical Cairns letting inspiration carry me through the gardens, the tablelands, the beaches and the galleries.
I also ventured into Cairns Library which is a beautiful old building and happened upon an interesting display of pieces from their Sister Cities all over the world.
And my usual stops – Cairns Regional Gallery had a superb exhibition by Robert Baines and Tom Risley was exhibiting at the Cairns Contemporary Art Gallery. Check them out if you are up that way.
And speaking of checking things out – Don’t forget to check out what’s happening at Mud Colony this week http://www.mudcolony.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/document.html?m=1
