The zinnias were a carpet of colour and just gorgeous. Mine aren't as good this year but there is still more summer for my zinnias to put on their show.
They had some awesome bunya trees. I have a wee specimen of about 1 metre. I think there were four in the gardens. I wonder if any of them produce? I know that I won't see any nuts from my tree, it is such a slow grower and I think I need another tree of the opposite gender to produce fruit. It is interesting enough though to keep it's place.
Along with visiting and eating out, we did some window shopping and some bush walking. We chose Mt Arthur for our walking, the tracks are fairly well marked and despite the heat it wasn't too hot because of the trees. We met Tony and his wife who are volunteers at the reserve and they were very friendly and informative.
I'm not sure when we will be back in Wellington but I hope it is during the cooler seasons. As always, going away no matter where, makes home so much sweeter.
