Hobart Botanical Gardens

Well today the girls and I went to the Hobart Botanical Garden. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shinning brightly and the gardens were beautiful and fantastic. We have been to the garden before, but they are so BIG that we have never seen all of it. Today was no exception. We spent around 3 1/2 hours at the garden, looking around a different area to the last time we had been there, but still there is so much that we missed, even though we did manage to see a lot as well.

This time however we were a little more organised than the last and managed to remember to take food, drink and snacks with us. This meant that when we got a little hungry or thirsty, all we had to do was find a piece of lawn to sit down on and enjoy the snacks we had taken. They do have some where to eat at the botanical gardens and also a Kiosk, but as we are all for saving money these days, rather than just spending it, we either take things with us or do without!

The girls did a great job of walking for most of the time we were there. They really wanted to see the Japanese garden, but before we got to that area, their little legs were sore and tired, so we decided to go home and come back another day to see some more. We are hoping that next time we get to go to the botanical gardens that Tata will be able to come with us and that he will not be working on the day. Tata has not seen the gardens yet and I am sure that he will enjoy them when he finally manages to get to see them.

While we were exploring the gardens, we met a wonderful older couple. They were admiring the plants just like us in one of the buildings. We offered to take some photos of the two of them together, for which they were very excited and pleased. So I took a couple of photos with their camera for them and then they offered to take some pictures with our Camera of the girls and I together, which was very nice as when there is just the girls and me we don’t get to have images taken together. So our offer to assist some one else actually made for a nicer day for us also. and the photos the lady took where great too, we were very pleased with the rusults. I just hope that when they get their photos developed (they had an older camera that used film, rather than take digital images) that they are just as pleased as we are!
