This weekend will likely be the last chance to see the tulips for this year.
Our garden is not just about tulips though. We have designed several small gardens within the whole so you can see topiaries, a long border, Mediterranean slope, French courtyard, mini meadow, herb garden, vegetable beds, citrus and other fruit trees, Asian courtyard, and a tropical styled jungle.
All this on a 633 m2 section in Tawa. If you are after inspiration on how to landscape your section you are welcome to come and have a look.

34 St Johns Tce

Entry by donation please.

Mask and Scan/sign in are required at level 2.

I am a sweet dog looking for my forever home. I am looking for a very special home that can understand my quirks and needs. A home that can help me thrive and be the best companion I can be. My ideal home would be one that has had previous large dog experience and or greyhound. I walk beautifully on a lead but in saying that I would need a home that can handle me as I can be strong when I want. I have had a fair amount of training from my previous home but there is always room for more growth. I am super smart and a lover of all yummy foods so will pick up new things very quickly. I can be shy when meeting new people so I would love a quiet patient home that can read when I am not comfortable. A home with no children. I could live with an older settled male dog but in saying this I am used to having my own space. I am not suited to a home with cats or any small animals."

"Artemis (or Arty) has done an amazing job at settling in. She's super curious and interested in everything going on - I've never had a cat who watches TV before and attacks it! She especially loves it when my boyfriend plays Call of Duty, she gets very involved. She also loves to play a lot and she's not fussy at all with toys.
This week especially she's started vocalising a with me a lot, she chirps and brrrrs away at me while purring up a storm. She's so cuddly! She loves to be carried all over the house and snuggle up on my shoulders. At night after she's finished her zoomies, she likes to sneak in under the blankets to be the little spoon. We're very happy with her, and she seems to be very happy in her new home too."

The people who live in Ryman villages remain true to themselves, whether that’s continuing with their passion, making the most of every minute, challenging themselves to learn something new, or surrounding themselves with people who like to have fun.
As Lynette, a resident at Edmund Hilary village, says “A lot of people still believe that you're going to a rest home. They don't know the concept of a retirement village. You go there, it's beautiful. You've got facilities. You've got activities. And you don't stop living.”
Retirement is a chapter of life that’s filled with possibility. Choose the lifestyle you want to live and proudly embrace every opportunity. It’s what Ryman residents do.
