|Lady Norwood Rose Garden|
Here's some photos of the tulips first.
|Tulips grow really well in Wellington|
We stopped briefly to look at the duck pond. There were some tiny ducklings there, but I couldn't get a photo because they stayed over the other side.
|the Rhododendron trees were lovely too.|
Then we walked over the hill to the rose gardens, begonia house and cafe.
The views of the harbour and city are great.
This is a Kowhai tree, a New Zealand native. Kowhai is the Maori word for yellow and you can see why.
We had morning tea in the cafe attached to the Begonia House.

I'm just trying to get some good photos of my Trellis Crossroads quilt before I write a post about it. I took a couple of quick photos at the gardens while my sons quietly died of shame. Here's one.
|Trellis Crossroads - my latest finish.|
Thank you for all the 'get well' messages. The antibiotics worked a treat, but I now have asthma which is very unusual for me. I'm on inhalers, so hopefully it will die down soon. I hope you're having nice weather wherever you are.
