Botanic Gardens 2

This is the fountain at the other entrance of the gardens, next to Canterbury museum and opposite the Art Centre. As you can see here are the Tulips from Christchurch (not as in the Dutch song Tulips from Amsterdam)

Can you hear the angels singing, tralalalala lalalala. These angels sit in the conservatory, or as we call it the hot house. Full of tropical plants and flowers.

A beautiful sight on the information centre, next to the cafe.
When you walk in this part of the gardens it is like you are in the middle of the bush full of native trees. This is Williams favourite place. He loves ferns.
