New Zealand

Having a wonderful time so far. We have been to the far north, spent a day on Tiritiri Matangi, seen Victorian towns, not seen the tops of the volcanoes because they were in the clouds, seen mud pools and thermal springs, had terrific hosts for B&B, seen J's brother (the first time I'd met him), had warm sunny weather, rain, hail, showers...
We have seen new bird species, many different tree ferns, plants familiar from the Scillies except they are natives here. We are trying the excellent wines, the food is good--lots of salads and veggies as well as fish and meat.

Glad you're enjoying it! I've been having fun digging bramble roots over the weekend, which is not quite as fun. Do you recommend any particular garlic varieties, by the way?

Albigensian Wight works well in Devon. Which sort of variety are you thinking of, the ones that ripen first or the ones that store well?
I hope you are winning with the brambles. Be glad you don't have wire weed or box thorn to worry about!
