The Heroic Garden Festival was on this weekend. It's an annual charity event - a chance to support Hospice and to get to visit some interesting private gardens in the Auckland area.
It's nice to spend time in a garden but I'm not a gardener. A few succulents in a pot is my limit. Gardening is hard work. There's a great article here by Anne Wareham on that subject.
Watching (curiously) : Gardening with soul - a New Zealand documentary following a year in the garden with 90-year-old Sister Loyola at Island Bay, Wellington. Maybe she will inspire me.
