Botanical garden visited!

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 –

No train!

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).

School holidays!

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.

Very windy and cloudy also cold at first.

We enjoyed the day.

Dis heerlike lente, die winter’s verby;

weer nooi berg’ en klowe vir jou en vir my.

Hol-la-dri-o-ha, hol-la-dri-o. Hol-la-dri-o-ha, hol-la-dri-o!
Die bergklim is heerlik, dit hou mens gesond.

Die vroe-, vroeë môre het goud in die mond.

Hol-la-dri-o-ha, hol-la-dri-o. Hol-la-dri-o-ha, hol-la-dri-o!

HELLEBORES – WINTER ROSES

Hellebores are commonly known as “Winter Roses”. They are real jewels in the winter garden. Many gardeners treasure their Hellebores and in recent years extensive breeding has produced some fabulous varieties.
