Garden open by arrangement to visitors who are interested in taking photographs of bumblebees, honey bees, butterflies, spiders,   leaf hoppers, goldfish and a frog in a pond, flowers of all types, native New Zealand trees, ferns, wildflowers and lots of other insects because it's totally organic and I don't kill anything.

          Macro Acanthas, discover a whole new world you never knew existed before when you start taking flower pictures from unusual and different angles.

                                                 Honey Bee covered in pollen in a Lavatera flower.
                                Dandilion Flower up close so that it looks like a painting. Weeds are even encouraged in certain parts of my garden so that the bees have diversity. Every gareden in my opinion should have an area that's a little bit wild.

I have a brand new frog that has recently taken up residence in the pond with 26 goldfish. The last one hopped away after a short screaming fight with my cat Gary. This new one is smaller and more cunning, so taking a shot of him or her is going to be tricky.

Nothing escapes the eye of Gary my cat (and best friend) who is a rat catcher of the highest order. He leaves all the native birds alone though and is quite shy of strangers so he probably won't let you take a shot of him like this.
                                             I can even blow bubbles for you which land on plants and if you are quick you may be able to get a shot like this...

  Inspirational Quotes of the Day
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive."

-- Eleonora Duse
What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
