Like raindrops on rose petals.
Today was the second day of the Franklin Hospice Garden ramble. Anyone who spends a day among flowers and plants, can’t be unhappy!
Hospice is a charitable trust working to help terminally ill patients. Their aim is to develope the health services here in New Zealand. Such worthy cause.
It made me realize yet again how fortune we are to have our health and how frail life can be if health is taken a away from us.
Exploring this beautiful country through local peoples homes would otherwise be something I would not have a chance to do. So I was really excited to capture the work of so many gardening enthusiasts. And take a look how kiwis are living in rural areas.
One of my absolute favourite things about this country is the spectacular views of the hills roaming around the North Island. Overlooking fields and tons of changing landscapes is somewhat breathtaking.
Green does good for the soul.
I came to the conclusion that gardening is a intimate thing. Its personal. Seeing the handwork and creativity in bloom of so many people, makes you realise how visually different we all are.
Sure we can come to agreement of what is pleasing the general public eye but when it comes to creative landscaping some of us are just more brilliant at it.
To be able to create a safe calm space in your own home, isn’t that an important thing to do?
A space that you want to come home to after being out there is the tough world. Where you can bring your friends together and enjoy life.
This house was my favourite! The interior brought back memories from childhood. Messages from home. Nothing beats vintage furniture mixed with art.
I love to get inspiration from others work!
I hope you enjoyed the pictures and felt like you were there. Next time you must come along!
Thank you for reading. Have a fabulous day and get creative.
