LikeLiked by 1 person Reply How did you guess haha … I’m not an early morning person but I was already up, and glancing toward the kitchen window I saw the telling pink glow in the back porch area. A quick look out the front door sent me scurrying for my camera! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Beautiful, well worth getting up for.

LikeLike Reply Somehow rain is rarely as appealing a photo subject as a sunrise is. You’ve reminded me that the best sunset we experienced in NZ was in Napier: https://portraitsofwildflowers.wordpress.com/2020/03/04/new-zealand-our-best-sunset/ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Your 1st photo has watermelon pink clouds (similar to those in Jane’s photo from my recent post) plus the *bonus* of a small lemon-slice moon, making a deliciously fruity sky! How do you like that for a mouth-watering description? 😀 LikeLike Reply Sounds like someone was hungry. I hope you’ve remedied that.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply The thing about living in New Zealand is that I find I’m usually living in an opposite reality to most of my followers – opposite times of day, opposite seasons, completely different environment for things like Easter and Christmas. Northern hemisphere people typically find it very strange but me not so much – down south we’re always having to take those time differences into consideration. I do admit it can seem odd sometimes though! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I have been told before to adjust when I come and post on my blog. I think for the most part I try to make it so that it is a little random and if not, that it doesn’t only convey the North US. It is truly strange how on one world, things can be so different and at different times…Very perplexing to me.
