Is this the imprisioned Australian? No, definitely Australian ,but not imprisioned.
Is this little fish or one of its friends the poor imprisoned Australian? No , just a really cute aquarium in the shopping centre.
Zagreb was , and is the centre of Croatia business and culture. The characteristic of the city, it is most proud of , is its walks and green spaces. Today we thought we too should experience these. We walked to the railway station through gardens. It is an impressive structure once on the Orient Express route.
Just along from the railway is the Botanical Gardens. It is here, hiding among the plants ,we found the imprisioned Aussie.
On on the bridge,? No , that’s Sue and Pauline admiring the tortoises and hoping the little one can get up the bank. No over here, quickly, it’s trapped!
It’s a Wollomi Pine. Somehow Europe lost all of theirs, (so careless) , so had to trap one of ours. Poor little pine tree. We reassured it by saying it was surrounded by its European cousins , and , when it was just a bit bigger, it would be allowed out of its “playpen”.
Further along, there was a heated glass house with huge lily pads and pretty lilies in bloom.
How would you like these roots growing under your house?
In the afternoon, Pauline and John bravely ventured out to discover the mystery of driving from one country , and coping with tolls. It seems you need green stickers and green cards, purchased from a service station, before you leave the country.
We deserted them and went to the Museum of Illusions. Would you like a head on a platter?
Same room, giant or dwarf
Lake Bled tomorrow. Mike and John driving with a help from the magic GPS, we will be the first class passengers in the back. See you there.😉
