Cana­dian crib

NZ House & Garden - - TALKBACK -

My hus­band and I are New Zealan­ders but live in Canada. We re­tired 10 years ago and es­cape the Cana­dian win­ters every year by coming back to New Zealand for three months. On one of our trips, my hus­band bought me a sub­scrip­tion to your mag­a­zine, which I love. It was great when we ren­o­vated our lake house on Ge­or­gian Bay, On­tario, as we used ideas taken from your mag­a­zine for all as­pects of the de­sign. It was based on a mod­ern take on a New Zealand crib. An out­door shower was es­sen­tial. In the gar­den, ferns and agapanthus are prom­i­nent, although the agapanthus have to be planted an­nu­ally; they don’t sur­vive the win­ter and are ex­pen­sive. Mad­den­ing when you are a New Zealan­der! Diane Hardy-Rose, On­tario, Canada
