Early Autumn

These photos were taken on 05 March 2021 when Nigel and I were wandering around the lower level in the Dunedin Botanic Garden. There were still lovely roses to be seen and although most garden plants are now past their best it’s always interesting to see them at their mature stages too. I didn’t have my camera, Nigel took these. New Zealand.

‘Wild Cat’.

‘My Girl’.

From the herb garden: Leonurus cardiaca or motherwort.

Our native Astelia, in a planting at the lower carpark.

By the way, I’ve viewed some wonderful bald eagle photos today and thought I’d share the links:

  1. Thanks for the link Liz, much appreciated! I cannot believe you went into this gorgeous garden without a camera! Your post reminded me of our trip to your beautiful country, and fond memories of Dunedin especially so thanks too for that!

  2. Gorgeous roses – the ‘Wild Cat’ is quite fiery! I love the silveriness of astelias, but they’re quite expensive in the garden centres. Maybe I’ll manage to save up my pennies for one… 🙂

      1. Aha, that’s interesting to know! It’s always good to have a few ‘babies’ on the go, in case something happens to the original plant.
