I did a little bit of research and came up with an interesting blog to visit.
Then we moved on to the State Library and saw the Love and Devotion exhibition. There was some seriously fine work there - they must have painted with a single hair! It was an exhibition of Persian works from the 11th century on. There were some European books that were based on the Persian stories too.
Then, on another day, we visited the Royal Botanic Gardens. What a lovely place. It was a beautiful autumn day and we just wandered. Some of the trees are enormous!!
This one looks a lot like the trees that were planted in our street about 10 years ago. I hope they don't get this big!
There was some amazing texture to see on tree trunks too.
