On Thursday the 13th of October Ruapotaka school went on an adventure to the Botanical Gardens in Auckland. I was extremely excited! I saw gorgeous flowers everywhere! Even the entry had marvelous flowers!
We walked in and saw trees all shapes and sizes and different varieties. I also tried to get a good view of different sculptures and tiny details on flowers. While hiking I heard birds chirping, their beautiful songs, busy, buzzing bees working... I even heard water dripping from waterfalls. We walked pass a few cute dogs and puppies with their owners.
My favourite sculpture was the waterfall *also known as “Turn”. This sculpture was my favourite because instead of having a regular waterfall with water flowing down, they made a staircase waterfall. The waterfall (*AKA Turn) reminded me of the stairs from “Charlie And The Chocolate Factory”.
Wherever I walked I could smell nice perfumes in the air. We approached some beautiful blossom trees surrounding a massive field with a Japanese sculpture in the center. Being around the cherry blossom trees I felt like I was exploring Japan’s beautiful highlights.
As we were walking we came across a beautiful bunch of magnolia flowers. They were one of my favourite flowers because they had a nice blush pink colour with white on the outsides. The petals were long and looked pretty strong and straight too. The Magnolia had great long green leaves. I really enjoyed going to the Botanical Gardens and learning about plant cycles and other scientific garden terms.
