Christchurch's best kept secret?

Yesterday I took Clem to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens - bypassing the gaggles of mothers with pushchairs who flocked to the playground, we headed straight for the glasshouses. It was quiet and almost empty, but the displays of plants was phenomenal. These photos from the flowering room really don't do it justice.

There is also a huge two storied glasshouse full of tropical plants and another small detached fernery. So awesome. The kid and I both loved it.

Then we hung on the lawn with the ducks.

He was impressed. But not that impressed. He prefers cats.
