|100's of roses!|
My lovely mother-in-law, Judith Callaghan, has a gorgeous country garden just up the road from where we live, at Bideford, Wairarapa, NZ. Judith has had her garden open to the public for many years now.

As well as casual visitors who just arrive, Judith also hosts tour groups of visitors for lunch, morning tea, or just a wander through the garden. If you phone in advance, Judith also makes classic Devonshire Teas for individuals or groups. This is an unpretentious 'gardeners garden', with every season of the year bringing variation to the garden.
