Remembering Pat.

My great friend and soulmate Pat died twenty weeks ago today. He was a great gardener and loved the New Zealand native bush. He always found walking in the bush a source of peace as well as energy. Some Mondays he would go to the wetlands in Pauatahanui to plant fledgling trees with the Forest and Bird Society people. He planted all the native plants and trees here at 117 Holborn Drive in the fenced off area. Bindi, my cat loves to look over the area from the garden shed roof.
Pat had a vegetable garden of his own and grew such vegetables as carrots, parsnips, courgettes, turnips, pumpkin, potatoes, broccoli, cabbage, beans, silver beet, spinach and tomatoes. One year he grew quinoa and amaranth. He did not realise how tall they would grow!!
