Views from the Butterfly Garden at Te Puna Quarry





Last week I drove out for a 2nd visit to Te Puna Quarry Gardens and since it was a very very warm sunny Spring day I didn't just limit myself to taking photos of one particular area. This time I walked around 3/4 of the gardens - this shot was taken from the Butterfly Garden section.



This part of the garden was full of annuals and perennials - perfect for the bees and butterflies.

The gardens look lovely. As we are moving closer to winter with our dark and dismal days it is a pleasure to see bright blue skies and sunnier photos.

I recognize a few of those flowers, we load up our backyard with butterfly/hummingbird attracting flowers every summer. It looks like a great place to hang out.

The best part of any Botanical Garden just has to be the Butterfly Garden. Love this one ... And the memories of Spring!
