New Zealand and Australia Garden Tour – 2011

Remember how cold it gets in Atlanta in January? Brrrrrrr!

How would you like to join me on a garden tour to a place where it’s warm?

How about New Zealand and Australia?!!

I will be leading a garden tour Down Under on January 8 – 21, 2011.

Together, we will experience:

1 Overnight flight to New Zealand
2 Nights Auckland
2 Nights Rotorua
