A Visit To Pukeiti

A Visit To Pukeiti

Pukeiti gardens are spectacular at this time of year with a wonderful profusion of plants in flower.  There's also plenty of bird life with the air full of the beautiful resonant notes of tui and bellbird.  I made a couple of visits to the gardens over the weekend to soak up the beauty and see what birds were about to photograph.
