spring has sprung at hollard gardens

We visit Hollard Gardens often in the spring and summer for a bit of exercise and to see the lovely blooms. If you're ever in Taranaki, be sure to put this Garden on your list of things to do. It's free and gorgeous all year round.

Lovely all those beautiful flowers, I like spring and the special smell but here in germany it's late in summer.

Beautiful shots. I have developed a love of close-ups of flowers recently and as your photos show you can see them in all their glory. Funny to think you are having Spring as we will be in Autumn soon :)

Yes, our first day of autumn is in September. Spring is such a pretty time for brightly colored flowers.
