Botanical Gardens

I went for a great walk today in the Botanical Gardens. It’s by my house just off of Shepherds Rd.


I’m used to a lot of sand and dirt in California so what a treat to walk on the soft green grass and smell all of the Rhododendrons starting to bloom. 

You can go on lots of trails around garden areas or stick to the winding road. 

There are a lot of great picnic spots and it's free to get in.  We stop at the top and mum takes in the beautiful view of Lake Taupo. 

It’s a good rest for me.

The Botanical Gardens are beautiful.
