My Morning in the Hamilton Gardens . . .
Magnolia `Alba`, very beautiful, there are many magnolias flowering in the Gardens at the moment. they make a amazing show of colour.
A beautiful winter morning in the Hamilton Gardens today. Above pic is taken in the American Modernist garden, the statue in the pool has many different names, it can be anything you like !I was out collecting plant samples for one of the tutors and came across the Woman`s Suffrage (NZ was the first country in the world to allow women to vote) building. I haven`t been here for ages, it is very peaceful, surrounded by native trees and tucked away along the valley walk. The tiny swallow, below, came and kept me company for awhile. She kept darting out over the water catching insects, then back to the same spot.
