Spring Country Ramble


Thanks to Gary for a wonderful day out in the country, rambling around and exploring places we’ve never seen before…from unique clocks to the amazing herb garden!
Our group of ten arrived in Colyton on a perfectly sunny spring day at the Ginger Bird Café.
The coffee was great and the service excellent. Some even commented that they would return another day to try their enticing Lunch Menu. It was a short walk along the road to Colyton Clocks where we entertained for about one hour by John the owner. Over the years he has amassed over 3000 clocks of all styles shapes and sizes. The building that houses the clocks used to be a church
in the centre of Palmerston North and was purchased and moved there about twenty years ago.
From here it was a ten minute drive to the Herb Farm where we chose our cafe lunch and sat on a long bench in the garden. We then had a enjoyable stroll  around the garden walkway.
It was a nice look in the shop before making our purchases and departing after an enjoyable day.
