We've been down in Christchurch on assignment again. One day we had some time off so we went to the botanical gardens. Christchurch is known as the 'Garden City' because so much land is dedicated to green space and gardens. After seeing the devastation of crumbled buildings and rubble everywhere you look from the earthquakes, it will be so nice to see spring bringing some beauty back to this city. I'll post some 'it's almost spring' photos for the next few days.
The magnolia blooms are beautiful and prolific and come in many different sizes, shapes and colors.
