Auckland Winter Garden

Saturday, January 14, 2012

I know I haven't been blogging much lately. Let's just say I've been working on the art of chillin' out.
It's not as easy as you think, you know. 
Anyhoo, I was going through the photos on my camera when I realised that I haven't shared these photos with you guys. 
While mum and I were in Auckland, our family friends took us to the Auckland Winter Garden in Auckland Domain. 



 From the outside it looks like any other botanic garden...

But once we stepped inside it felt like we were in a fairytale.


Love the poppy flowers.






Uber pretty right?

I've come across a saying of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) which I really like but I can't seem to find out its isnad (chain of transmission) so I wouldn't say it's a sahih hadith. Because I love flowers I think it's a beautiful saying, nevertheless.


"Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed the soul."

hated flowers growing up because bugs will always be nearby! but now that I'm older, and slightly more feminine, I really appreciate their colours, scents and beauty. :)

My pleasure Feda.

RS, I never understood the feeling of being scared of garden bugs but I get squirmish when it comes to worms. Glad you got over your hate of flowers lol.

Hazar, you're right... there's so much serenity in nature, mashaAllah.

Nikisa and Haute Muslimah, I know right? =)
