Garden Spectacular


These are the first roses from the garden this spring.  I am so proud of them, as this is the first garden I’ve ever had that has rose bushes.  I knew nothing about caring for them, and have slowly learned their cycles.  It’s wonderful to see the beautiful product of all of those steps….feeding, spraying, pruning.

Today is the first day of the Taranaki Garden Spectacular.  Over 50 local people are opening their gardens and our regional ones are in top shape for the visitors.

I’m off to get ideas, and to enjoy the beauty.  I know now what work goes into making your own patch of land look beautiful and will take time to smell all the roses!
