Wellington Botanic Gardens



Sunday before lunch at the very fine 'Scopa Caffe Cucina,' we visited the very wet Wellington Botanic Garden, which had suffered from very heavy overnight rains and wind, but all the same, its a great shot of spring anticipation with the tulip beds heaving the soil in the race for Tulip Sunday (This year its 27th September).
The early Magnolias took a some real punishment and lost about 40% of their bloom.

An amazing display with scent included. Daphne odora
