A Day at Ellerslie Flower Show - Saturday 19 November

Last weekend we spent the whole of Saturday at the Ellerslie Flower Show in South Auckland, having driven up just for the day. I'll try and post some photos taken during the visit this evening before I head off for bed. Move your mouse over the image to read about it, and I hope you enjoy them.
