Girls Day Out...



Today a group of us from church visited some Rhododendron Festival Gardens. Oh how I wish I could have such a garden! I didn't take as many photo's as I thought I did but here are a few of my favourites...
 


 
I can seriously see this as a craft studio, couldn't you?
 


 
 
Gardens are much nicer shared with friends.  We had lunch at a little garden called Kingfisher Cottage which is more like a retreat, a home away from home. It is our wedding anniversary at the end of the month so I might surprise DH and spend a night or so here. Totally secluded, a spa, all the mod cons and even the chance for a massage!
I will be MIA(missing in action) for the rest of the week, I have been asked to take transport for another school trip tomorrow to Wanganui(they have a quilt shop!) Friday Mum and I are going to visit a few gardens. Saturday I have an applique class, Sunday is church and a day of rest and boy am I going to need it!

Lovely, lovely photographs, I love all the Taranaki gardens, such a variety and I never knew there were so many varieties of rhododendron until I visited NZ!! Have a good week - looking forward to seeing if you sneak away to the quilt shop in Wanganui!!
