Garden Festival time…

It’s that time of year again… time to visit some local gardens. I post about this festival every year, but I enjoy it so much! If gardening isn’t really your thing, you might want to skip this post, there is a lot of photo’s. The gardens in the following photo’s are all from the New Plymouth area(North Taranaki). Mum and I had the most delightful day, even the weather behaved itself…:O)

Beautiful peonies…

This post makes me want to run out and plant things. Although I am FAR from having a green thumb, it makes me want to try harder. ;) That is an impressive pig house. :) Thanks for sharing the gorgeous photos.

Thank you for sharing! I always enjoyed the Rodo festival when I lived there, there are some stunning gardens, many hours of work.....much like a quilt!
