Stopping to smell the flowers

The clouds rolled in today, but I’ve done most of what I wanted to here in Taupo anyways so I took it easy , only visiting the botanical gardens nearby to stretch my legs for an hour or two. Everyone likes pictures of flowers and bees, right? It’s right in the middle of spring right now so the flowers are quite colourful and the bees out en force.

One last day and then I’m on my way out of Taupo. I’ve got my fingers crossed that the weather forecasts hold – Tuesday I’m booked for the Tongariro Crossing (FINALLY), with a forecast of clear skies and warm winds until late in the afternoon, when the clouds return. All going well I should get some spectacular views during my walk.

Here are some random shots from the walk around the Botanical Gardens.
