Wonderful photos from Ohinetahi, New Zealand

13 Dec '07 1:24 am
There is a British garden photographer, Nigel, whose work I know from flickr. I've discovered many must-go-see gardens from his photos. He has just posted some from this wonderful garden in Governors Bay, Littleton Harbor, near Christchurch on the South Island of New Zealand that are very beautiful. I wonder if any of my Kiwi friends know it?

Well,what a surprise I just received.I googled 'Ohinetahi'and what Mark has written above is on the page.A lot of the links are to do with Maori claims and so on,but the garden itself is there,and is on the site www.gardenstovisit.co.nz

Thank you Mark, for that lovely N.Zealand photographer/Nature-Garden lover!!!!! I made him my contact, and then he made me his!!! A wonderful photostream, really!

You're very welcome Liza. My favorite garden photos by Nigel are of a garden set in the South of France I think. Take a look at these, especially the ones taken of the Spanish garden there.

Lets try that again. The connector didn't seem to work.
