Bee happy

Increasingly, one of my greatest pleasures while travelling is discovering new public gardens.

Today it was Victoria Esplanade, in Palmerston North. I arrived a little late to explore much of the park, but was very happy wandering around the gardens near the cafe, watching bees feasting on the abundant flowers.

  1. So lovely – longing now for some activity in nature. Love bees and gardens. Palmerston North brings back memories…As a young girl, I had a pen-friend there for many years, but then we lost contact. When we traveled in NZ some years ago, I tried to find her again. I even became a member of her old school and wrote letters to the people she had mentioned in her letters – never got any answer. So sad. Maybe she migrated to Australia? Or she just did not want to meet. It would have been so wonderful to sit down for a chat over the old days and listen to each others’ stories.

  2. Love bees! Love gardens. Palmerston North rang a bell when I read the name. The young man I travelled overland with in 1973 spent some time living there with his father. Unfortunately he also spent time living with his mother in South Africa…
