Botanical Gardens

Last Tuesday saw us on an outing to the Botanical Gardens. The kids were learning about plants last month and to reinforce the theme, it was capped off with a visit to the gardens to study more about them.

I wasn't looking forward to it as the weather has been either very hot or very wet and that particular morning, it was hot. However, as J observed, it's usually not very hot because of all the greenery around, and she was right about that.

We were given little slips of paper with different topics with which to take photos of. Our slip said:

I was like, huh, how boring. How many shades of leaves can I find other than light green, dark green, yellow or brown. The flowers looked much more interesting. But I was proven wrong. We found an array of colourful leaves in purple, pink, polka dots, etc. And I was really glad we made that trip to the gardens. It was a truly educational and fun trip for us all.
