Rotorua Government Gardens


I love the architecture of this building! 



When we were there in 2006, the gardens looked like this:

Sadly, last April, most of the lovely flowerbeds had been turned to grass.

I k=like the architecture of that building too.

Grass? I guess grass is easier to take care of than flowers.

Even though some of these gardens have turned to grass, the manicured beauty stands out so. A place to unwind and gaze at what the landscape designers envisioned and built...

Beautiful building. And the tulips! Oh my.. I have never seen flower beds of tulips in my life. Tulips are very expensive in my country because they're usually imported. Sad.

Hey Betty - it is always a pleasure to visit your webpage for beautiful photographs of an amazing spot in the world!

Thanks so much for your tips - I have taken some to heart and will continue to plug away. One of the best parts about blogging is not doing the Post and Run - thing that so many do - but to actually take the time to get to know some of the wonderful folks around the world who have the same interests.

Thanks again for your help - only sorry it took me so long to get back to you!
