Summer gardens

As usual, we have enjoyed members’ gardens on Wednesdays in January, instead of our regular meetings. Don’t forget you can click on a photo for a better view!

On the first Wednesday we relaxed around Doug’s splendid log house.

Look at those massive posts and beams!

Then there was an excursion to Patrizia’s farm. She loves her animals, and they love her in return. (The next 3 photo are by Trish Carver)

Patrizia is feeding a Gotland ewe, The rest are Romney/Corriedale crosses, with a little goat poking its nose in on the left.

Can you sort the sheep from the goats?

Shire horses are Very Very Big! Patrizia and Rob brought this one’s mother Gypsy from England when they moved here.

Shadow, the young Shire horse (full hame Grandborough Rewa Shadow Aotearoa). Born on 27 October 2014, he has still another two years of growing! Patrizia and Rob brought his mother Gypsy from England when they moved here.

On a day of strong gusty winds, we went to Marion’s, and sat outside in the shelter of the splendid trees.

Not a breeze troubled us

in front of the garage, colourful things were happening. It wasn't quite so sheltered there, hence the brick.

And finally the weather jinx struck again, with wind and rain, so we didn’t spin in the park on the 4th Wednesday. No photos needed – we all know what wind and rain look like!
