Wellington has fantastic botanic gardens, full of fountains and secret paths, and other children.
The beautiful weather here has made it hard to resist, and it’s so close to our new house.
The hot house, with its raised fish pond, was H’s favourite. I loved that she was quite happy to toddle about pointing at plants and people, and that there was an environment in which it was fine for her to do that. We’re not free-range parents by any stretch of the imagination, but I’d like to think we’re pretty free-reined.
