I'm finally doing a blog post! Life is pretty busy at the moment, so I feel like I don't have time to keep up with all blog related things. But I'm going to make an effort tonight to catch up on my blog reading.
Thanks so much to all those people that left questions for me too - I'll start to answer those as soon as I can.
Tonight a pretty cold in Wellington and it was snowing in parts of the South Island earlier today (and perhaps it still is?) so these photos feel like they were taken a couple of months ago, rather than a couple of weekends ago.
These photos were taken in the Wellington Botanical Gardens on the second day of spring - it was a perfect day for a stroll. I really hope all these flowers survive our current winter weather.

The three buildings that make up the New Zealand are all very different and from different times in history - first is the part is the parliamentary library which was built in the late 1880's. The oldest of the three buildings is wooden and the main parliament building was also built in the same time in the same style, but it burnt down in the early 20th Century.
