The Winter Gardens, Auckland Domain

Glass house

We spend a lot of time at the Auckland Museum and the Domain gardens, so much exploring to do, the Museum is great when it’s rainy outside, and the glass houses in the Winter Gardens are really colonial and pretty.  This particular morning earlier last week was just stunning, a perfect Autumn day.

The ducks were enjoying it too.

I love these huge lily pads, they have really beautiful flowers too.  I’d actually like my own winter garden too, just haven’t figured it into the grand plan yet.

I don’t know what this plant is but it was so very gothic and alive-but-dead-looking.  Something I imagine growing in some huge abandoned palace.
