Although Auckland is only 650 km (400 miles) north of Wellington, the climate is quite different. Auckland is quite a bit warmer than Wellington on average, and as a result, different plants can grow there. My mum loves her garden and I took quite a few photos while we were staying with her at Christmas. Here's some photos of her garden:
I certainly can appreciate a lovely garden, but unfortunately the Wellington climate is quite challenging, and I would rather spend my spare time on quilting. As a result we mainly have bushes in our garden like camellias.
