The Beautiful Winter Gardens

Hello, my lovely readers!  Hope you’re having a fabulous day 🙂

Today, I’m going to share some photos that I took while touring the Winter Gardens in Auckland Domain with my friend B and her two daughters, S and Z.

The Winter Gardens are located within Auckland’s largest park – the Auckland Domain.  It’s about a 30 minute walk from where I live, which is no trouble at all in nice weather.  I was happy to “discover” it for the first time.  This was one of many trips to the Domain, but I had never been to this part of the park.  I’m so glad that they invited me to join them!

The Winter Gardens are composed of a courtyard bordered on either end by a cold house…

And a hot house…

The insides of both are equally gorgeous, and are the perfect mid-winter retreat…

These two had so much fun, and it was great to see the gardens through S’s eyes…

After touring the gardens, we met up with friends A & H and walked to the Duck Pond, where S was able to feed the birdies…

S was so cute.  She was a little hungry, too!

And the best part of all?  The entire thing was free.  Didn’t cost a thing!  Yet another reason why Auckland is a fabulous place to live {or visit}!

    Your photos are fabulous! It [specifically the hot house] reminds me a bit of the National Botanical Garden up in DC. So pretty!
