Ellerslie Flower Show


Today I attended the Ellerslie Flower Show.  This show used to be in Auckland but moved to Christchurch this year and is located in Hagley Park. It goes for several days and ends on Sunday. The displays were excellent, but the crowds were too much for me, and the queues were too long! But don’t let that put you off going, just go early (especially for the Jenny Gillies show – which I missed as they were turning people away).

Here’s some more photos from my wandering around the show:

    A great flower display. I think when they see such beautiful images around the world want to. But this is not possible now.

    The Auckland jaffas are still very sore that Christchurch took Ellerslie flower show away from them. But I heard so much review that you guys did a much better job, Congrats!!!!1

    Your photos of flowers and animals are my favourite things.

    I cam across your site from Baruch’s walk through Auckland and am really glad I did.

    Thanks Ann, I particularly enjoy photographing flowers and animals! In fact visitors to the site could be lead into thinking there are very few people in Christchurch – just lots of seagulls, dogs and other animals!
