on holiday


I am currently in Auckland New Zealand visiting family for christmas. I am enjoying nice sunny weather but have to admit that it is not at all like christmas.
i am missing my garden at home. we are trying to tidy up my sons garden here but the weeds are winning I think!!!
It is beginning to take shape but i think once I go home it will go back to a wilderness !!! as green fingers don,t appear to run in the family.
we visited Christchurch [known as the garden city]for a few days and it was very nice[.included photo is us being taken by punt on the river Avon. ] We are going touring up north to the Bay of Islands in January in a camper van so I hope to take lots of photos then.

Hi ~
Glad to know you arrived safely.
I'd been thinking of you on your outward journey.
Wonderful country. I have a penfriend in NZ, and every year she sends me a calendar with photos of spectacular scenery.

Merry Christmas to you and your family "down under" from Terratoonie, Conker and Crocus. xxx

I think I could tolerate Christmas in weather like that. Think of us coughing and sneezing while you drink your christmas toast. Enjoy!
