Report on Bindii Ginko at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens 2016
Nine Bindii members met at the kiosk near the lake in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens at 11 am on 2 April for a ginko led by Margaret Fensom. On such a beautiful autumn day there was plenty to experience and participants immersed themselves in this beautiful place for an hour of walking or quiet contemplation before returning for the kiosk for lunch. We were fortunate to secure a table right near the lake edge and had duck and crested pigeon visitors to entertain us.
After lunch, Margaret organized a ‘round the table’ discussion as members read out their haiku and tanka or their notes for poems and showed off the pictures they had taken.
Lyn Arden has offered an email workshop to participants, which will start in a week from the ginko, to give participants time to polish their work.
