How delightful is this garden at Johns House in Hawkes Bay, specially as I know it is -21 degrees in Toronto.
The Albizzia or silk tree is new to me, a fast growing,shade tree with delicate, feathery blooms and a lovely shape.
Apparently we have missed the best of the roses, but they look pretty good to me.
|Dahlias always look best in a mass like this I think.
Hydrangeas are bigger than dinner plates.
The piglets in the paddock at the end of the garden have doubled their size in a week it seems. they wag their tails like dogs. They are Kunekune, New Zealand pigs, make great pets and this lot will find new homes fairly soon.
