Ballarat Botanical Gardens: mid week break, begonias included


I’ve been so busy over on Instagram (look for my account: melanieylang) that I neglected my WordPress blog! Whoops. To make up for it, here’s a photo I took in the begonia house at Ballarat Botanical Gardens.

Incidentally, this is my 1,000th post on WordPress!
