Last Sunday (25 September) was Tulip Festival at the Botanic Garden. Incidentally, my mother-in-law is here with us on vacation so I thought this would be something she would really like. And she did, wet weather notwithstanding!
We went to the Botanic Garden with Jo-Lo. It started with the short but fun Cable Car ride (here's a tip if you're going to the Botanic Garden. Visit the Library first and pick up a Spring Festival brochure near the entrance. There's a voucher for a free one-way Cable Car trip!).
Then we took the leisurely trek across this nature preserve to the site of the tulip garden!
The Cable Car is at the right
My mother-in-law was amazed at the variety of trees, plants, and flowering shrubs.
On to the tulips!
Quite a number of tulips are still about to bloom so you're in for a treat if you visit this coming weekend. To learn more about the Botanic Garden, visit the website at the Wellington City Council.
