Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Peter Black Conservatory

November 2007 found me in Palmerston North New Zealand. I was there to visit my family, and to look around the city visiting all my favorite places. Peter Black conservatory, which is in Victoria Gardens, was one of my favorite places to spend an hour or so, looking at all the beautiful and unusual plants and flowers.

Beautiful flowers! Is this in Victoria, Canada? We're hoping to get up there for a summer visit.

Beautiful pictures of your flowers. Sometimes they are so perfect they look unreal.

So interesting--we have nothing like that here in NC in the USA. I guess we do in greenhouses but our weather is too cold for most of it. Very pretty. It's nice that you had a good time.
