Yes, Lightroom! I’ll get over it; shortly. Besides it has been something of an orange week.

It rained, and rained and rained. Then, happily, we had a respite for our garden wedding; the ceremony, the celebrations, the photography and the fireworks. It was all rather fabulous.

It is raining steadily – we are hoping for a break for the wedding photos
Alas his beautiful big golden eyes are not visible but he was keeping a very close eye on our dogs three metres below him. Abbie Jury 21/6/2011

a landscape has to make itself known to me – I don’t go looking for it
I went to look at the Pukekura Park lights on my own this evening Boxing Day the 26th of December 2010. This had the distinct advantage of being able to move quickly through the large mass of folk present. Not too much new but enjoyable for a whole host of visual reasons. I was though taken with the ultra violet light display show here in a short video and a photo. Very nicely done.

The 2010 Tikorangi / Jury family Christmas tree has been variously described as looking like Cousin It and an Ent. You can read all about it’s construction here.
It is Ficus antiarus and it is the most asked about plant in our garden. We used to propagate a few but we realised that while everybody wanted to know what it was, nobody wanted to buy it.

Looking west from the eastern bank towards New Plymouth. Given clear skies, I’m assured Maunga Taranaki can be seen – slightly to the left is my guess.

Abbie Jury on Mark’s enthusiasm.
I spend a brief seven or so hours at Pukekura Park in New Plymouth today. A delightful time of relaxing, people watching and music. Surprisingly not that much photo making. Highlight for me is the band of brothers – Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – wonderful. Yes, there are some photos here.

Abbie Jury has been writing for the garden pages of the Taranaki Daily News on a weekly basis for the past 14 years, and contributes to various other gardening publications. Readership surveys by the Daily News rank her highly (of late, second only to the TV critic) for her combination of technical knowledge, an appropriately down to earth approach, wry wit and flowing writing style.
Abbie gardens alongside her husband Mark (himself a plantsman of note and internationally renowned plant breeder) at Tikorangi – The Jury Garden in North Taranaki, New Zealand.
The rather stunning Ngakoti Street entrance to Urenui Four Square (known to me as ‘Dunbars’ from 1990s Urenui times) pretty flash for a corner shop.
abbiejury.co.nz I’m chuffed. Simple, clean and packed with heaps of interesting reading.

Is living in New Plymouth and has a blog. Wonderful.
Our geographic isolation works to our advantage environmentally. But our clean and green tag has more to do with a very small population than with a high level of environmental awareness. Many of us have a long way to go before we can claim to be green and clean at a personal level and some have even further to go than others. It would be good if the gardening norm here embraced sustainability and sound environmental practice. I think it is described as gardening with the environment, not in spite of it.
It took a while but I’m pleased. Jury.co.nz

Volunteer (chance seedling) This release volunteered itself and seemed appropriate to name for the International Year of Volunteering 2001. Distinctive flowers open soft pink with white edging, deepening throughout the season to dark pink, still with the white edge until the late flowers which may be pure red. Heavy textured full anemone form. Dark foliage and compact growth to 2m. Plant Variety Rights apply in New Zealand and Australia.
The rimu trees planted in 1870 by Thomas Jury provide the framework for one of the most unusual areas of the garden, the subtropical woodland. The rimu avenue at Tikorangi The Jury Garden
