After walking across the Shaky Bridge I followed a rough road that led around the cafe and had a wonderful time enjoying the autumn colour, found after walking a short distance. This post continues yesterday’s post Filling in Time, Shaky Bridge. Alexandra, Central Otago, New Zealand. Visited Thursday, 19 April 2018
Photo below: Alexandra Clock at top left. Cafe to the right after the Shaky Bridge. I followed the road around the cafe and walked on further to the right. The bridge crosses the Manuherikia River.
Rock outcrop seen from the road soon after passing the cafe
What I had spied from the road near the cafe were these lovely golden poplars and I was keen as mustard to get over there and take a closer look.
Getting closer! Note there are wild California Poppies growing on the roadside bank. Eschscholzia californica
Here at last …
I found a wall of gold !!! And felt rich beyond measure 🙂 This photo gives me a feeling of deep satisfaction and happiness. Just love the colour and texture.
Golden poplars with the Manuherikia River visible behind them.

On my way back to the cafe I found these lovely roses tumbling over the boundary fence of a private property across the road. They were growing with great abandonment.
