The Botanical Gardens

Last Tuesday we went to the Botanical Gardens.  In the morning we went to look at the Rock Garden.  It was good fun climbing up the rocky steps to look at the waterfall. We saw lots of squirrels.  Max saw a baby frog hiding in the woods.  In the afternoon our guide, Cath, showed us the plants in the glass house.  She was teaching us more about our Senses.  She gave us an eye on the end of our finger which was actually a mirror.  It helped us to see underneath things.  We got to taste chunks of papaya that will help us to see in the dark.  We got to smell different things – vanilla, lemon grass, sugar and cocoa beans.  Then we pretended to be squirrels and hid raisins all over the gardens. It was a great trip!
