Mother's Day in the Australian National Botanic Garden

People having a Mother's Day pick-nick in the Australian National Botanic Garden.

The canopy of the Rainforest Gully.

A species of Syzyngium (Myrtaceae) in the Rainforest Gully. This must be one of the oddest-looking genus names in the family.

Rulingia magniflora (Sterculiaceae). The flower is really quite small, it is only "magni" for a Rulingia. But pretty.

The spectacular Lechenaultia formosa (Goodeniaceae) growing in a pot directly next to the Visitors' Centre at the entrance. Although Goodeniaceae flowers are usually the other way around I think this is right. Maybe this species has resupinate flowers.
