Back with another botanic gardens post! Last one for a while, I promise 😛
These photos were from back in February/March, so the flowers have probably changed by now. The weather wasn’t too encouraging that day – in fact I think it was raining for a period, but the gardens were expansive and lovely to stroll through!
Many of these photos were taken on my phone (or perhaps all of them?) so they were taken square for Instagram. Apologies for the quality, but hey it gives you a reason to visit and be in awe of the beautiful garden in person right!
I didn’t take many photos of floral displays because it wasn’t all that interesting (having been to the Wellington botanic gardens not long ago), but there were quite a few areas with beautiful blooms.
One thing to note with the Royal Botanic Garden is that it’s on the bigger side for a botanic garden, and I got lost a couple times. I ended up spending an entire morning wandering around the botanic garden and the surrounding area including the Shrine of remembrance and some luscious green fields. You can see on Google maps just how big the grassy area is! I would definitely recommend putting aside three hours for a good stroll around this area, or two hours for a brisk walk.
