Peradeniya Botanical Garden

Just a quick post to show you one of my Kandy highlights, the Peradeniya Botanical Garden. Of the four botanic gardens in Sri Lanka, the one just outside Kandy is the largest. It also has an exclusive royal pedigree, and I could see why. On Saturday though - a perfect sunny morning in Kandy - the garden was a magnet for tourists, couples, families and those celebrating special occasions.
Based on their clothing, this couple was having their 'homecoming' photos taken; that is, coming home from the honeymoon.
In some parts of he garden you would not realise you were in Sri Lanka.
But in others, such as the orchid house, it all made sense.
A lovely place to while away a few hours on a Saturday morning.
