We went to see our friend Georgina, who, together with hubby Grant, started the Mainly Natives Plant Nursery in March last year. Georgina and I used to work at the Polytech together; we left roughly at the same time, started new lives roughly at the same time, and Mainly Natives opened about six months after I sold my work for the first time.
In New Zealand, it rains more in autumn/winter time, so nurseries are busy this time of the year. The day we went to see her, we caught a bit of gray cloud in between torrential rain. She didn't want me to post this picture, because there are so few plants, but this is a good thing for their business. In the last decade or so, Kiwis have been planting more native plants, not only for their sculptural looks, but because they require less care.
Here's a picture from a very similar angle Georgina took perhaps over a year ago. It looks tidier, but I'm happy she's selling many plants.
