Members of the Auckland Garden Club Inc. visited the "Quarter Acre" Paradise gardens on the 26th. April 2012 for morning tea and a garden ramble. This was a very intelligent and high talented group of garden enthusiasts from throughout the greater Auckland Region. Within this group were a number of true 'Gurus' , Garden Experts and Specialist Gardeners as well as an abundance of truly Passionate Gardeners. So this lead to some wonderful conversations where we were privileged to learn much from their experiences and abundant botanical knowledge.
Garden Tour Organizer, Lynnette Douglas, chose the 'perfect' day for such a ramble so the Auckland Garden Club members were blessed with good weather through out the time they were here. After their ramble and visit to our gift shop, we said good-bye and wished them well onward to their next garden adventure at Roger Hunter's Garden Centre just down the road where we understand they found all sorts of botanical treasures to buy.
Shortly thereafter we received this lovely card from Lynette Douglas:
" Hi Dale & John, Wow! What an awesome and unique garden you have...you'll be the talk of the Garden Club for eons. T'was a wonderful experience drinking in your novel ideas...and what great hosts you are. Many thanks for a most memorable visit. Warm regards, Lynette Douglas. "
Dale response message:
Thanks so much, Lynette! Apparently we have formed a mutual admiration society! We so greatly enjoyed your visit and were thoroughly impressed with each and every member of the multi-talented Auckland Garden Club. We all share so many interests in common including our devotion and passionate love of Nature. We welcome you back anytime and hope to see much more of you all. Remember us for the Quarter Acre Paradise Spring Show including all the lovely flowering bulbs starting late August through into October with rainbow drifts of colourful flowers continuing onward to Christmas and well beyond.
