A Day At The Botanical Gardens

I don't know why but I love this picture that my friend Chloe took of my sister and I whilst we were out, she always gets the good ones to be honest. We had a day out at the Botanical Gardens as we were all free and my sister wanted to tag along so we packed up a picnic and went on our way. 

I can't remember how much the entry costs were but they weren't much at all, that's all I want from a day out really... Fresh air and low prices, I'm easily pleased. I had never actually been to the Botanical Gardens before so I didn't know what to expect but I just wanted to make sure that my sister wasn't sat inside all day. 

The weather was gorgeous, the flowers were in bloom and we got to catch up. All in all it was a nice little place to visit, I particularly adored the little random features like the boots in the picture to the right. I think that even the worst photographer can get beautiful pictures when the subject of the shot is so vibrant and well lit.

I was reminded quite frequently of the Peter Rabbit books that I read as a child when I spotted some of the substituted pots and displays, though, I'm fairly sure that was my strange mind. 

I think that this was my favourite photo of the day as I don't have many of myself, Chloe and Leanne together but this one came out pretty darn well. Jess refused to be part of this picture but we got others so no big deal, the stubborn mule!

The picnic that I made for me and my sister consisted of Lunchables, crisps, chocolate and healthy juice to counteract the more... Unhealthy aspects of our lunch. I couldn't be bothered with sandwiches and I think we both prefer Lunchables, despite the fact that it's a children's snack.

Bless Jessica, though. She really wasn't bothered about the activity sheets. She just wanted to take photos and videos as we wandered through the gardens. I will quote her on this "Why the hell would I want to colour in? I just want to draw my own stuff" which isn't something I was all too shocked by. 

She's quite the artist, she specialises in cartoon animals and she does all of her own designs. I'm really happy that she has a hobby that she loves as I never really had that as a kid. I just didn't have that one thing I was super interested in like that. 

Well, that's today's post all wrapped up. I may post again today as we went to the oriental museum afterwards so I might as well share that too. We got some pretty funny photos from that one. Until next time... Bye!
