Wordless Wednesday: The Botanic Gardens at the start of spring

The Botanic Gardens here in Wellington are really looking spring-like. There are daffodils, the first tulips, hyacinths, magnolia and my current obsession, hellebores. Freesias can even be found along with primulas and still blooming camellias. It has also been fun to see so many people on their walks to and from work stopping to look at the flowers and enjoying the moment.
