Over the weekend of 20/21 Feb the Auckland Begonia Circle hosted their annual festival, displaying hundreds of beautiful blooms and plants. This enthusiastic group of amateur gardeners proudly displayed their blooms and shared their knowledge with the many visitors that visited and viewed the show. This annual event always ends with an auction, selling off many plants at bargain prices!

Time certainly flys by when you hunker down for the winter months…but the building across the street is certainly progressing

Commemorating 100 years since the landings at Gallipoli, this mornings dawn service at the Auckland Museum was a moving event attended by 1000’s. All over New Zealand (and Australia) there are memorials paying homage to the fallen and those that continue to protect our shores.

I’ve been looking through my archived photos and found this beauty from when we purchased our property on Waiheke.

This shows the original bach that we fell in love with…no running water, an outhouse with a “bucket and chuck it” for a loo, and rotting weatherboards!

So we began the huge task of renovating, which, as my Mum said, grew like topsy and really became a full rebuild.

We did manage to keep the original floorboards and 3 x internal walls…but the rest had to go.
