What a glorious week we’ve had and it still isn’t quite over…
The Tulip Fest has been amazing even if the weather hasn’t. Tulips galore throughout the city and in the Government Gardens with super planned events, hustle and bustle at the new, packed Sunday Farmers’ Market at the City Focus, the heart of our fabulous city. The tulips look glorious – reds, yellows, striped – please see the stunning photos. Rotorua is really rocking this week.
Here at B&B Abundance our Grand Opening went flawlessly with beautiful sunshine after weeks of rain. It was totally amazing. The most exciting part was our first guest, the Mayor of Rotorua – Stevie Chadwick who unofficially opened it and quickly realising our shared vision – B&B Abundance is growing rapidly into a place for rest and relaxation using holistic, organic concepts as a place of healing inspired by The Psychology of Vision (Spezzano,Hawaii) and my previous career as an Occupational Therapist specialising in horticultural therapy. As a practicing Colour Therapist colour abounds too. (BLOGS to follow shortly)
Steve is a wonderful woman passionate about Rotorua’s multifaceted, thriving community. I must agree Rotorua is looking wonderful and improving in leaps and bounds.
Our other guests included our current guests from USA, Harold and Chris from Auckland, Councillors Janet Wepa, Karen Hunt and Deputy Mayor, Dave Donaldson, staff from Rotorua iSite, our financial support represented by ANZ and BNZ, business colleagues from Rotorua X and Natalie Descat representing Reve de Nouvelle-Zelande based in Paris. We wore our new aprons with this stunning logos and Claire Plaisted was a wonderful waitress serving snacks and drinks. Everyone loved the new renovations of two en-suite bedrooms. The house so we’ve been told glows and entices people to stop and call in. The gardens are developing nicely, though there is still plenty to do this summer.
