Hamilton Gardens

Hamilton Gardens is a park in New Zealand featuring the Paradise Garden Collection – a distinctly quirky recreation of gardens from round the world: Chinese, Japanese (including a raked-gravel Zen area), English flower garden in the Arts and Crafts style, Modernist American, Italian Rennaisance, Mughal, Maori, Surrealist and others!  Apparently, more are planned.

Delight-Conveying Garden,  逸暢園 Yichang Yuan, has the same name as a famous garden in Wuxi, and is in Song Dynasty Southern (Jiangnan) style.

It was this garden that inspired my to name my own garden and the areas within it!

I wish I had taken more photographs.
