I like gardens but plants by themselves bore me so I was delighted to find the Hamilton Gardens a feast for both the plant and the non-plant enthusiast.
Hamilton is a city in the North Island of New Zealand for you overseas readers. There are superbly designed and planted gardens from all parts of the world but the two that took my fancy were the Maori garden and the sustainable backyard garden that included some great sculptural elements. I love sculpture in gardens - even in the vegetable patch. Well worth a visit!
