This is the last garden on the trail that I am going to post about. I had been there when I first moved to Whangarei so about 8 or 9 years ago. There is a garden around the house with a magnificent view over the lake that the owners made from a swampy area. We then walked through some native bush with large rocks thrown up by a nearby volcano many moons ago. This brought us to the other side of the lake and the walk back up to the house.
We visited 8 gardens on Sunday, the two small ones I have posted about. They were all interesting and very different. This was another spectacular one. The owner was telling us that they bought the property fully developed 3 years ago but continue to work on it. The long drive to it was interesting but neither of us thought to take a photo of it. Doug was thrilled to come across the pigs as he used to keep pigs many years ago.
There were lakes everywhere and the plantings were wonderful.
We had a most enjoyable day out today on a Garden Safari. Today was on a bus and tomorrow and Sunday will be under our own steam in different areas. The forecast was for rain showers but we were lucky although I doubt if we will be tomorrow.
