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.


We walked down the hill and saw the following!


Very windy and cloudy also cold at first.

We enjoyed the day.

Travel Theme: Flowers


I love flowers and the last week was a real flower week for me and it is still flowers for this challenge also.


The following photos were taken at our annual Fuchsia flower show.

There were so many beauties that I could hardly pick from it.

There were also many begonias.


All so colorful.

Then my favourites



I took all the photos in 2009 at the show in Lower Hutt,  New Zealand.

Travel theme: Flowers

So this week’s travel theme should be a fairly easy, and hopefully joyful one. I can’t wait to see what flowers you have in your part of the world. If you’d like to join in, create your own post, title it “Travel theme: Flowers” and put a link to this page in your post so others can find it. Don’t forget to check back in next Friday for a new travel theme.

Bring on the flowers!
