An afternoon at the Royal Botanic Gardens

Last year, when I did night shift for around three months straight, I dragged my boyfriend with me to visit the Botanic Gardens on a Saturday afternoon. It was winter and I was sick of  going to bed before daylight and waking up after sun had set or just as the sun was setting. It was a sunny afternoon, surprising given that it was in the middle of winter. It was so so good to be in the daylight and feel the warmth of the sun. It was so good feel like I’m on the same bodyclock as the rest

I’m not sure how long the Tulip festival has been happening but somewhere along the way it has become a quintessential thing to do in Melbourne. We went on the start of a long weekend- the Grand Final Parade day because we thought it wouldn’t be very crowded since the crowd would (potentially) be spread over three days. However, when we got there around 2pm, the car park was very crowded. The weather hadn’t been too bad throughout the day, a little cold but sometimes with the sun shining through the clouds so I suppose it made sense. I’m always
