On Thursday we( my student and I) had to take the train in to Wellington.
We made arrangements earlier in the week to visit the Botanical garden in Wellington!
Arriving at the station –
The lady in the ticket office told us a bus would take us.
The bus picked us up and we had to stop at every station to pick people up.
Were there people!?
Many, many wanted to go to Wellington in the 10 o’clock train(bus).
It took us a bit longer than using the train.
Arriving in Wellington we went to the cable car.
It took us to the top of the hill.
We walked down the hill and saw the following!
Very windy and cloudy also cold at first.
We enjoyed the day.
Wow, what beautiful flowers. Well worth braving the crowds and the buses to see.
We went to see the begonias but there were none. I forgot it isn’t their time yet! The orchids were beautiful and also the tulips.
I love beds of tulips. The flowers are always so beautiful.
Yes, and the different colors of them too!
Beautiful flowers! I have never seen a white tulip like the one you pictured…also the Cymbidium…looks like a little man sitting in the middle of it praying. Needless to say I am not well versed on flowers…but I loved your pictures!!
Thanks for the visit!Glad you loved the photos! I agree I also haven’t seen a white tulip with the frills also! Was a whole bed full of them. I am going to post some close ups of some of the flowers on my other blog later tonight! You are welcome to have a peek there http://scrapydo2.wordpress.com/
I will look for them!
They are printed
The pictures on your second page are also very beautiful!
Thank you for sharing them!
You are welcome! 😀
Oe Ineke, die tulpe is darem maar mooi ne!
Ja, dit is spesiaal. Ek het nog fotos opgesit op my ander pos
Sjoe dis mooi…
Hoe voel die voet?
Dankie! Dis my knie! Het hom goed gesmeer ingebind en probeer stilhou! Dit voel beter maar steeds baie gevoelig
Rus hom nog maar so stukkie
Ek dink nie dis regtig my knie nie, dit kom van my rug af! Hierdie keer is dit die anderkant. Sal maar moet laat kyk daarna. Moet ook ophou om goed op te tel!!!!
Sug … ouderdom kom met gebreke
Darm nie te erg nie. Mens weet al hoe om sekere dinge te hanteer
Words and photos can’t really tell the beauty
Jo-Jo – beautiful! What a wonderful “place” nature is
Yes “nature” is beautiful. There are always flowers in the “garden”
Lovely photos. I have been there and it is a beautiful garden.:D
It is a beautiful place and there are always flowers. I thought to take my student and show her the begonias – not in season jet- the orchids and tulips made up for it!
Ai dis mooi!
Beslis daar is tog oral iets moois om mens se dag op te helder. Hul het by of in die tuin n “rose garden” wat BAIE mooi is in blomtyd. Dan ook die”Begonia House” wat n kweekhuis is waar regtig begonias vir Afrika is – as dit in seisoen is. Op oomblik is die orgidee aan’t blom en natuurlik tulpe en poppies.
I love those flowers!
Me too Thanks for the visit
Sure! Who wouldn’t notice such a nice share of lovely images?
