Christchurch is known for the gardens after it is called the Garden City. Fortunately plants, grass and trees don’t suffer from an earthquakes destruction as much as your average building, which is why many locals find visiting the gardens reassuring. It was a beautiful day when ventured out and were able to see the botanical gardens.
This is the view with the Christchurh Hospital behind you and the Canterbury Museum (which is FREE FREE FREE) in front of you!
Beautiful old tree.
Inside the botanical gardens – TWO FLOORS!
I have been known to enjoy some flowering plants now and again.
Then we saw this lovely building, all damp and dewy inside, but the ferns love it!
