Yesterday we made an afternoon trip to Invercargill and spent some time at Queens Park. Winter has arrived and it’s been wet and cold for days on end – grey cloud, drizzle and rain. It felt wonderful to get out of the car for a walk in the park and find that even in winter there was colour to be found in the gardens. Southland, New Zealand

Just for fun.. here’s a poster from inside The Cheeky Llama cafe, a tea kiosk that’s within Queens Park. We stopped by for some refreshments there yesterday.
