On Auckland Domain

The Auckland Domain is the city's central park, sort of, a huge park-like area that includes the museum and other civic buildings, many trees and sculptures, playing fields, and a conservatory of winter and tropical plants. I spent a last hour there gawking at the various exotics...
Between the two conservatory buildings

Several specimens familiar from my youth in south Florida

Boy will be boys...tormenting a "sensitive plant"

I always thought it was called a shrimp plant; no, a lollipop

Last seen at Kew Garden

OK, so with a last tropical/botanical fix, I am ready to leave
New Zealand
