Lower Gardens

Autumn photos from the lower garden area at Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand. The photos were taken 07 May 2022.


Taken from the footpath just outside the perimeter fence.


A Mahonia flowering near the fence, also taken from the footpath.


Pretty Cosmos flowers, long border inside the Gardens.

  1. Feels strange to see mahonia in flower now – every part of me is protesting, ‘No not yet!’ (Made worse by the fact that ours flowers in winter.) I have to remind myself that you’re on the other side of the world.

    1. Those pics were taken 07 May, the last month of autumn in NZ. They appeared pretty new. Now we’re nearing the end of the first winter month. I also think of mahonia as winter flowers. Hope to check on them again soon.. when we’re next back in Dunedin I’ll try and check!
