Darwin (George Brown) Botanic Gardens 18th May 2013

It had become difficult over the last few weeks to find something different to photograph, so this week I have gone away from home as far as I could and still be in Australia.
Darwin is 3,151 kms (1958 miles) by plane from Sydney and that is where today's Flora Friday is coming from.
So here is a small sample of plants from warmer (than here) parts of the world.
 Once again not a lot of plants were labeled, so I was not able put a name to them all.
