The little bull at Hamilton Gardens




Back in January this year, on a sweltering hot Summer's day the other half and I attended the wedding of one of his 4 daughters which was held at Hamilton Gardens. While we were walking around waiting for the other guests to arrive and attempting to cool down by sitting under a tree we spotted this sculpture of a resting bull in amongst the colourful scenery. The "Little Bull" as it's called symbolizes the area's link to the farming and dairy industry - apparently it had mixed reviews when it was first placed there, personally I kind of like it :-)

  1. it does look a bit strange there in the pretty garden but I'm sure they get used to it eventually.

  4. I wish you posted more photos, that garden is unique, lovely. We passed by Hamilton when i visited in 2014, on the way to Rotorua. I wish to stop there sometime if ever i will have the chance in the future.

  6. I love the green, open lawn... I probably would find the bull out of place, but I'll bet the kids will be all over it when they see it!
