Royal Botanic Gardens

My friend Lauren and I went for a walk in the Royal Botanic Gardens a couple weeks ago and I totally forgot about these pictures until I went through my phone today, but it's such a pretty place I had to share them!  
There's a cute little cafe and dock area where you can take (ridiculously priced) gondola rides around the pond. 
The cafe 
We had tea and scones, complete with clotted cream, which is the most fabulous food known to mankind. Lauren is from England so she's really into tea and cake and scones, which is the number one quality I look for in a friend.
English breakfast tea (I think?). I thought it was pretty good but Lauren assured me it wasn't a "proper" cup of tea, so she made me a second cup when we got back to our building. Apparently Tetley Tea is the real deal. It was amazing! 
These creepy birds are everywhere. Their feet are wayyyy too big.

  3. I'm extremely jealous of your eating habits and abundance of cool trees. However, that bird is appalling.

    1. Isn't that thing gross?? And they are NOT afraid of people either. They just bop around as they please and try to steal food.
