With everywhere so wet underfoot the Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a good place to visit with its well-formed, weather proof paths. Other than the camellia collection, in full flower at the moment, there is not a lot of colour but this planting of Poinsettias is surprisingly happy in this quite shady position. Probably Christmas pot plants re homed.
Some of the many Aloes and succulents on this higher level bench at the Quarry. The rain has spoiled many though. Their flowers are usually long lasting but can be seen a sodden mess clinging to stems.
