Admittedly, I hadn't been to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens yet, but my friends were into plants and I thought it would be a good place to check out. It turned out to be a lot cooler than I thought. The greenhouse rooms were filled with interesting plants that I had never seen before. And there were some carnivorous plants too, plus a desert room with all kinds of cactus. I've never stopped and smelled so many roses in a rose garden, but the different kinds had unique smells. I took a ton of photos!
