Christchurch is New Zealand's third largest city and its alias is The Garden City. The city has a strong British atmosphere and is known as the most British city in the world except the UK.
Mona Vale, Mona Vale, let me discover the delicate side of New Zealand. Known as the most beautiful garden in New Zealand, it is arguably the representative of Christchurch Gardens, covering an area of 5.5 hectares. It used to be a private farmhouse with a typical Victorian style.
Free garden free scenery takes me back to the leisurely afternoon in Cambridge, England. The beautiful Avon river runs through the creeks, villas, lawns, fields, gardens and woods. Elegant and beautiful, the bridge is flowing, the grass is like the grass, the green willow shades, just like the romantic atmosphere of Cambridge, England, completely forgetting that we are in the city.
There is also a caf in the old English villa, where High Tea needs an appointment, but you can enjoy a simple afternoon tea.
We sat in the courtyard and enjoyed simple coffee and cakes. The mischievous sparrows are eating around the table, the lady in the party on the second floor, the flowers in the rose garden forget that this is the fall of New Zealand. Everything is beautiful, it belongs to the afternoon of the weekend.
The garden is more lively. I don't know what weekend party is. Everyone sits on the ground and enjoys the weekend in the garden.
The Monaville Garden was originally a private home and is now being acquired by the local government. The garden is a typical traditional Victorian manor, with the beautiful Avon River flowing through the garden. Walking in the garden is like being in a romantic fairy tale world. The garden centre is a Victorian private home built in the late 19th century but has been converted into a restaurant.
