Orange blossom - ahhhh

There is no other scent like it - orange blossom ... Bees and other pollinating insects love these flowers and I can never resist sticking my nose into these delightful, delicate blooms.

One corner of the Italian Garden, another of the Paradise gardens at www.hamiltongardens.co.nz with a selection of potted citrus trees, covered in flowers all spring and summer . Each quarter of the garden has different Mediterranean plants growing, herbs, roses,annuals etc with large citrus in each corner.

I could almost smell the orange blossom. The gardens are going to be lovely. How fortunate you are to work in such a beautiful environment. I'm envious.

The Hamilton Gardens look fantastic. The more I hear about your country, the more I think that we should try to visit one day. Maybe a long trip for a honeymoon (pardon the pun)!
