Taupo Gardens…12

The second and last post from

Waipahihi Botanical Gardens

which overlook Lake Taupo.

These gardens are physically larger

and have a one or two kilometre

paved road on which to drive .

 

 

Completing this drive around

Waipahihi Botanical Gardens

with one of many rhododendrons sighted.

Taupo Gardens…11

After walking the downtown gardens

we made our way up to the larger

Waipahihi Botanical Gardens

which overlook Lake Taupo.

These gardens are physically larger

and have a one or two kilometre

paved road on which to drive .

 

 

We sighted many examples of flowers and rhododendrons

but took only a few photos due to time constraints.

If ever in Taupo, and have an interest in gardens,

the Waipahihi Botanical Gardens

are well worth a visit.

Last week I said this week would be my last Taupo post.

I found enough photos for two more weeks.

So next week another post from

the Waipahihi Botanical Gardens,

then on to a new town or venue.

Taupo Gardens…10My last post from these gardens in Taupo.

Both shots taken from the footpath.

 

 

Across the road next to our rental was

not one, but two of these cuddly pooches

alighting from a fairly small car,

along with their two human companions.

One more week in Taupo Gardens.

Taupo Gardens…9I know I have posted rhododendrons previously

however they are not all from

the same bush/tree/plant.

These shots were taken as we completed

our walk around this downtown garden.

 

 

Some of the bushes were hanging

over the footpath like this one.

Taupo Gardens…8It almost seemed like it was raining blossom…

in some part of this relatively small garden.

 

 

A close up of the pink camellia.

I did not notice the photo bomber

until I cropped to accentuate the dew,

which is not clearly visible on WP.

Taupo Gardens…7I think this is another rhododendron,

however, it appears to have a different leaf.

It was difficult getting close to these blooms.

 

 

Was so busy looking at the artwork, that…

nearly did not notice the Camellias.
