F ew places on Earth are more beautiful than New Zealand. Actually, I've been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling and so far I've not found a place as beautiful as the little land down under. And it's particularly wonderful if you love gardens.
I've been enjoying reading the blog of a Kiwi friend of mine who is chronicling her adventures as she discovers and embraces a raw and vegan diet. Certainly it's not a diet for everyone (Kate discovered it in her attempt to manage Crohn's disease), and you won't catch me giving up bacon or fish or, well, chocolate cake, anytime soon, but everyone can benefit from adding in some parts of this healthy diet into their life.
I was so pleased the other day to catch a glimpse of Kate's mum's most awesome garden in one of her blog posts. I was fortunate enough to visit this garden last year, and if I had had the forethought to bring my camera I would have offered up the shots of the place as garden porn.
Since much of the U.S. is in the throes of a vicious cold snap I thought it might be nice to share a little bit of this great New Zealand garden. And since many of us have undoubtedly resolved to make 2010 a healthier year, Kate's blog can help with that, too.
