Books & Botanicals

books & botanicals
These are a couple of photos I took from our reading spot in the Botanical Garden’s. It was very quiet, not too many people strolled past and the view is wonderful!

Obviously you can see the greenery everywhere but straight through those branches below is the sparkling blue of the river. Unfortunately for me, my camera couldn’t quite capture it for you. But it was stunning!

I was asked on A Beach Cottage a little while back what my favourite reading place was. Mine is definitely here! What’s yours?


  1. That is a beautiful reading spot, I love it!

  2. I could never read outside. I am an inside curled up on the couch person. When I am outside I am like a five year old with a sugar buzz, I have to be snooping and looking everywhere! LOL Your spot looks like a slice of heaven!

  3. That is wonderful reading spot.! I will spend hours and hours in that park and may be take a nap :)

  4. I'm afraid I wouldn't do much reading in such a gorgeous place! Thanks for the lovely photos.

  5. Gorgeous - I could do that as my reading spot. I told A Beach Cottage mine fave spot was in Maui next to the ocean...or on my deck listening to the ocean.

  6. Hi Kirsty
    Looks very relaxing. I just love your home town and go there when ever I get the chance.

    Best Carolyn

  7. Would you find me terribly boring if I said bed? That's my best reading place, it's comfortable and dry and still. Whenever I go outside to read I always find that the preparation kills me. It's chairs and blankets and whatnot and preparing for every possible eventuality because once outside, it becomes a mission to venture back in.

    But your reading spot is beautiful. I love it. Wish I could see it for real...

  8. Looks so good...wish the weather would warm up so I can read outside...but for me it on the patio of my house - just me, my book and a cup of ??? coffee (if its in the morning).....!!

  9. I love to read in bed. How lame is that?! It's quiet, I'm relaxed. It is a nice retreat for me. Beautiful photos of your spot! :) Thanks so much for the visit today. :)

  10. Hello Kirsty, I found your nice community on Blogfrog:) Your pictures look like a lovely reading spot! I found one like that when I was in England recently. A green park with a little walking path, and benches here and there. Otherwise I love to cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and a good book!

  11. What a beautiful reading spot. We have a little park next to our flat and I love reading books there. Its so relaxing and beautiful. Happy day, my dear

    Ps: I’m hosting a super fun 3 winners GIVEAWAY today! Hope you’ll join in :)

  12. simply wonderful !!!

  13. We have a garden swing in our....err....garden and I LOVE sitting there in the summer, whiling away the time while the children play around me.

    So lovely!
