A road trip last week took me to Hamilton, briefly. For reasons I can't quite explain, while I've been through or to the Tron dozens of times, I'd never visited the gardens before. Given my predilection for petal perving, this turns out to be quite the oversight on my part.
This time of year is not necessarily the best for flowery goodness, but the gardens are a great place to wander while contemplating the drive to Rotorua through torrential rain.
I have it on good authority that I wasn't the only PA regular in the gardens that day, although my peripatetic meanderings and poor communication skills means we missed each other by a matter of hours. See you next time RG.
