Aromaunga Baxters Flowers on Bridle Path Road

October 1, 2014

There’s a floral shop back on Bridle Path Road at the Aromaunga property (they moved to Port Hills Road after the earthquakes). The business is now called Aromaunga Baxters Flowers. There’s also the Aromaunga Flowers at the Tannery – but these are now two separate businesses.

I’m really pleased to have the floral shop back and open, as it’s easy to get to, parking is a breeze and I don’t always need a formal floral arrangement. Often all I’m after is just a few tulips or brightly coloured Gerberas to cheer up my desk – though I did come home with gerberas, roses and fressias!

If you visit (they are at 116 Bridle Path Road) don’t be alarmed if a large Alsatian dog comes over for a pat, it’s just Missy and she’s quite old and very gentle – even happily posing for my camera.

I’ve been stalking wax eyes again! I noticed a lot of them feeding on the bright kowhai flowers.

The Green Room – China Mosaic Chair and Ottoman Garden

September 27, 2014

This little garden is on Colombo street near Tuam Street. It features a beautiful chair and ottoman that are made out of china that was broken during our earthquakes. The china was donated by Christchurch people and turned into this wonderful artwork. The groups behind it are Greening the Rubble and Crack’d For Christchurch. The mosaic is beautiful and the family stories about the china are very touching.
