Are gardeners really nice people, or is it that really nice people love gardening? I'll go for the latter, seeing as I can't really call myself a gardener, not after the magnificent work I have seen today. Or maybe it is the exceptionally nice ones who love to share their gardens. Whatever.

A table under the trees set for tea, and one on the terrace set for cocktails and then I guess dessert.
Dunedin's rhoddorendons are pretty special, but they obviously love Rotorua conditions too.
