Summer brings out the best in New Zealand.
Sunshine, cherries, apricots, peaches, oh and roses. Lots of roses.
Not just any type of roses but the massive and irresistible ones.
Our family friend in Christchurch has the most beautiful home garden I've ever seen. It looks like a scene from one of my favourite movies, The Secret Garden. Mum and I slept overnight before flying back to Malaysia last November so I took a few snaps of her garden the morning before we left.
Which reminds me, someone once asked me how I want my dream house to look like and I immediately said, "All I know is I want a garden with lots and lots of roses and have lots and lots of fresh flowers inside the house!"
Yeah, I get excited about flowers. When I was 9 years old I wanted to be a florist. No surprises there.
I don't know what these are called but I think they're absolutely stunning.
SubhanAllah, I've never seen the colour violet look so magical.
And there's BonBon!
BonBon was initially 'Bonnie' because they thought he was a 'she' at first.
When they found out his true, uhm, nature they felt 'Bonnie' wasn't quite right.
So BonBon it became.
