Hamilton Gardens

Hamilton is a beautiful city built on the fertile plain of the Waikato River. We spent an afternoon strolling, lunching, and strolling some more at the Hamilton Gardens. Several times I sighed, “I don’t need a house, just a garden.” The great thing about Hamilton Gardens is that they’re free and open to the public to enjoy nearly all the time, one of those third places that enrich us all.

We’re standing on a sundial court with mosaic tiles laid out to show the solar transit for different times in the year as well as the time of day.

These are kiwifruit vines. Did you know they grew like grapes?
