Hamilton (NZ) Enclosed Gardens.

The Chinese Scholar’s Garden.

Today I have a flower…

…which I can name.

I really was not expecting to see so many,

or any, rhododendrons in New Zealand.

Then again visits to gardens were not

on the agenda when we left home.

And that is the beauty of not being

part of a tour group.

Again not many flowers.

And those I could find, are again, nameless

As one who can remember the early seventies.

I do remember a Melbourne Department Store logo

telling us in no uncertain manner that everything

was ‘Yelping Yellow‘ this year.

And that was the only time I saw

any quantity of yellow that year.

However Monaco’s Street Art

had me singing again.

MGW tells me these yellow doors are part of

Alice in Wonderland‘ or ‘Narnia’. 

I shall take her word for it.

 

Yellow from the garden.

Some early signs of spring are the

winter blooming acacia trees, and…

…the daffodils which bloom in August.

 

 

 

Spring is definitely here when the paddocks

turn yellow with canola blooms.

A 2019 sight that is a long way off.

Yellow is a nice bright, happy colour

to have around as we head into the depths of winter.

I  should have written a long wet winter.

The days may be cooler, however we have only measured

two and a half inches up until April 30 this year.

Should be closer to 6 inches.

Luckily we had a little over an inch on May 2 and 3.

I thought I had more photos from

the Hamilton (NZ) Enclosed Gardens.

Unfortunately I don’t have many flower

Gateway arches into the enclosed gardens

at Hamilton Gardens in New Zealand

 

At the time we visited MGW told me that

this yellow gate was linked to a similar gate

in a movie.

I will always remember it as the gate

into the concept Garden at

Hamilton Enclosed Gardens,

in New Zealand.
