Walk in the Park.

Continuing on from the Chinese garden, we find some wonderfull trees, many of them NZ natives







































































This tree is familiar as I fotografed one in a park near Kairakau.    It has the most marvellous crinkles in its skin.






















The scene in this foto is of well kept grass, nice borders, and an enormous Himalayan Cedar.  Hasting was established in the 1880s so the tree can be at most 140 years old.  It has certainly grown quickly.








































Here a close-up of the magnificent year. There are least four Hamalayan Cedars in Hastings of this size.





























































I'm not certain, but I think this is a Tawa.  I fotografed some in a trip to Mohi Bush.








































There is no uncertainty in identifying this tree.  It is a Totara.  It is common all over Hawkes Bay.  It has nice wood that is easy to carve.  I use some Totara in making my wooden pipes.  This Totara is one of the biggest I have seen.































Of course, I have to show a close up of the bark.  The bark is somewhat stringy.  I love the way it flows over the trunk like a river. It reminds you that the tree is formed from the flowing of sap!!!!















































 
Hawkes Bay is very rich.  Why?  Trees of gold grow in our parks!!

























































Sequoia trees are prominent in some parks in Hasting and its surroundings.  Here is one of the biggest specimens.





































This shot and the following five are takin in the Begonia house, which was donated by the owner of a forestry company.  Begonias are frost tender, but have the most beautiful blooms.




































Begonias are strong on red colours.  Here some with a dash of white, and enough blue to pink the red.





































Purple stands between red and blue.  This is the most delicate purple, almost pink.


































The most delicate shade of crimson.





































A lighter shade of purple, with a little more red in it than the purple one I showed before.































Some ferns are tough.  This one is delicate.































Totoro lives here.































Totoro'a home is in fact a Florida Swamp Cyprus.  This was another favourite of the early settlers.































The branches are completely bare.  Well not quite.  Some leaves are hanging on.

















































Here is the second Himalayan Cedar in the park.  One hundred metres from the first.































I have no recollection of why I took this foto.  I included it, as it shows our wonderful winter sky.
























































Some golden bamboo spotted on the way out.  This is a running bamboo and is often grown and later regretted.  It is a vigorous plant and can send runners 30metres.





































This plant has been well tended.  The culms are few and far between.  They look beautiful.  They have also been trimmed to a man's height to show of their beauty.  Don't be fooled.  Only grow this bamboo if you love pruning.


I hope you enjoyed this second part of a visit to Mahora's wonderful park.  

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker
