Off to the Botanical Gardens again

Last weekend was great! In the morning, we went to the dog park. After that we went to my grandparents place to chill out and in the late afternoon, instead of going straight home as usual, we went to the Botanical Gardens!














We also spotted two swans in the pond.















There were plenty of pretty flowers and plants.













The park is filled with lots of people...strolling and having picnics.













Everyone were staring at me. Some say I look like a lion, while others call me a giant dog. Apparently, these people haven't met my good friends, Honey the Great Dane and other golden retrievers. One cheeky boy even called out to me "Hey Mr Dog, come and get me!" Since when has my name changed to Mr Dog?! Even the passersby who heard the boy were amused.













The lily pond. I took a sip of the water when Mummy wasn't looking.













We took a rest at one of the benches. Mummy can't walk far and long with her growing tummy. She needs more exercise to build up her energy level!


Look at the pavillion behind us. That's the bandstand and it is an iconic landmark in the Botanical Gardens. Many couples like to take their wedding pictures here. In fact, we saw at least four couples near the bandstand taking their wedding pictures!


Okie, I'm tired of sitting here and posing away. Can we go now?
