The David Welch Winter Gardens at Duthie Park – Day 3 of #30DaysWild 2017

Day 3 of #30DaysWild was a trip out to Duthie Park in Aberdeen. Robin has been to this park a few times now, and one of the reasons this park is so great is that they have the David Welch Winter Gardens to wander around. These gardens are covered making it the perfect place to go if the rain comes on.

The Winter Gardens have been around for ages, I reckon I even visited it as a little girl with my mum and dad. There is loads to see and it is a great place to introduce children to different plants from all around the world. The gardens are split into different themes such as the Tropical garden, the Cactus area and the Victorian Corridor.

This is what we saw on our walk around:

Robin and Daddy looking at the brightly coloured flowers as we entered the gardens.

Robin looking at the waterfall and sitting on the wooden bridge.

Exploring the massive plants in the Tropical garden. As soon as you walk into this area the hot humid air hits you. I wonder what Robin thought of it?

Walking through the Cactus section surrounded by the massive plants! Some of the most unusual and alien like shapes!

Walking through the beautiful Victorian Corridor with their vibrant colours and hanging baskets. The perfect opportunity for Robin to look up at the Petunia’s dangling above him whilst in his pram.

Wandering around the Japanese Garden and listening to the rustling of the bamboo in the wind. The Wisteria looks stunning!

Looking at the different shapes and textures the plants have to offer.

Looking at the Koi Carp and Terrapins in the gardens.

    Lovely photos, I do love the winter gardens – haven’t been in ages. Btw do you do Beewatch? http://homepages.abdn.ac.uk/wpn003/beewatch/index.php?r=user/auth
    Your bumblebee photos here would be great for it, and you’ll probably have more since you’re out and about in different places 🙂
