Back in 2013 this was all that was left of my dad's prized glasshouse at my old house on Avonside Drive. It was pretty devastating to see my family home that we had owed for over 40 years, completely gone.
Luckily mum & dad had moved out a few years before the earthquakes but it was still sad to see.
In saying that, I remember thinking just how peaceful it all was. There were still birds chirping, butterflies flying around and no traffic. Whilst it did look derelict, there was still beauty to be found.
