Punawaitai; what a stunning place!

The peace and tranquillity of the 150 year old oaks bounding the roadside to the Kereru (Wood Pigeon)Tui, Bell Birds, and King Fishers that dart amongst the trees and shrubs of this very new garden. The orginal gardens were totally destroyed by the devastating flood of 2011, thankfully the Homestead remained untouched on higher ground.
