Spring was in the air at the Dunedin Botanic Garden yesterday.
A crowd of more than 300 people enjoyed balmy conditions at a family gala day to celebrate spring.
The day started with the annual rhododendron day plant sale in the upper garden car park, before a showcase of local talent in the bandstand.
The crowd covered the lower garden lawn for the afternoon of entertainment, which included performances by the Dunedin Harmony Chorus, Sounds Nor-easterly Choir, Logan Park Jazz Band, Jack Frost Morris Dancers, Uni Ukes ukulele group and a Middle Eastern drum and dance show by The Unfortunate Repercussions.
There was also a treasure hunt and musical puppet show for budding botanists.
The gala day was part of the garden's 150th anniversary celebrations.
