Tapanui Spring Walk

Some lovely flowers from around town, when we went for a walk on 07 November.

Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

Grevillea flowers and foliage, one of the many kinds. Private garden.

Peony flower keen to be seen!

During the walk we came upon the senior member of the family-run Blue Mountain Nurseries (renowned for rhododendrons). Denis Hughes. He invited us into their stock area to look at two specific rhodos and handed Nigel an example of each. I had them on the table at home for a few days.

  1. The last few mornings have been frosty–yesterday my car showed the temperature as 33 degrees (1 degree C) when I left for church yesterday–so the colorful reminders of spring were especially welcome. Thanks, Liz.
