The butterflies and bees are out in force right now and Hamilton Gardens with the colourful flowers is a great place to see them.

Back to work! I love long weekends, that extra day makes all the difference especially when you get away somewhere and escape!

I had a great session working with a group of teachers today, though. Lots of good conversations and hopefully they gained plenty from it to move forwards.

Dropped my hire car off in town and walked back home along the river to get some fresh air and stretch my legs.  Interesting to compare the rail bridge and the road bridge – different eras, different materials.

Hamilton Gardens has always been a special place for us. We discovered it when we first arrived in January 2008 and  were blown away by the special gardens and how well designed they are. Since then so much more has been added but we still love the gardens in the centre.  It was a bit busy today but great to see so many people enjoying the sun, the plants and being together with family and friends on New Year’s Day.  This is the Chinese Scholar’s Garden.
