Margaret and Terry Parker live on 5 acres of land just out of Tauranga NZ. The property is ear shaped and was originally a gorse and weed infested patch, hence – Pig’s Ear. Nowadays it is landscaped garden with only the odd weed and patch of gorse. Fourteen years of hard work has gone into the property. Terry is a sculptor and several of his Hinuera stone sculptures are dotted about the property. He also does some more quirky sculpture including a wire pink pig.
However every now and again, like once a year, we get hit with the urge to see buildings older than 200 hundred years and involve ourselves with different cultures. We love NZ though and like getting to different parts of our country. Margaret is a South Islander and needs a regular Southern Alps ‘fix’.
