When I was in Wellington I managed to sneak a visit to the Botanic Gardens, which is huge! They have a great collection, including a native forest and the begonia house which has some awesome tropical plants inside! I didn't do any drawing while I was there, but I took some photos for inspiration, it's great seeing plants the other side of the world, they are so different! Is a voluntary trip to a garden full of flowers a sign I'm turning into a Grandma a bit too soon? Or can I get away with calling it 'design inspiration trip' and pretend like I'm still a student!
