Isolated Greens

The flowers, trees, and other colourful plants are usually focus of people when they go to visit gardens. You want to see the bright roses, the colourful poppies, or the tall flowering trees. But what happens when you stop to look at the little parts of the garden that are less noticed? You see the shapes and curves formed by nature that are always different and never exactly replicated twice. You see, this is what I have to focus on, the beauty of nature, because I couldn’t identify a plant if I were given an encyclopaedia of them. The most I can often say is that nature makes me sneeze and makes my eyes water, but that didn’t stop me from looking at the smaller details to be found in the Wellington Botanic Gardens.
