                                                             Botanic Garden Was Fun!!!

Today our whole school went to the Botanic Gardens in Manurewa. Once everyone got out of the bus we had to wait for awhile and the whole school split and went there own directions. My classroom (R11) went to the edible gardens and we saw vegetables. After that we went to the Threatens Native Plants. We walked around and saw some plants and big trees. We couldn't see the Native Forest because it was too far and we missed the Herb Garden. The last spot we went to was the Rock Garden and we just chilled there and and we where watching the eels swain with the ducks.
