Felicity is my elder sister and lives with her husband John in Rangiriri near Te kauwhata, about an hour’s drive south of Auckland. They brought a life style block of house, some farm land and some New Zealand bush some time ago.
They have some Wiltshire sheep about 3 Ewes and 3 Hens that go freely around their property and 3 dogs.
When they first came, it was a new home but had a drive way in but on one side their land went down a hill and then there was a fence down hill. Now on that one side they changed it into a sculptured garden with fruit trees and vegetables in terraced plots, a garden of New Zealand varieties and a series of pools and bridges. John is a Science teacher but he is very skilled in building homes.
Both of them, are good at getting material that is not as expensive as many places for this building project.
There is something you cant buy here and that is the skill to create this beautiful garden
