Kangaroo Paw flowers are a wonderful treat in summer, a 'something special' from Australia that I adore. They have a few species growing in the Australian collection at Dunedin Botanic Garden and we visited on Tues 18 January so I was able to get a few shots of different kinds. New Zealand.

On Sunday afternoon in Gore we stopped to have a look at this long border garden, in a small reserve which has a massive war memorial as the main focus. The garden often looks attractive, populated with some of the larger flowering plants like hollyhocks, phlox, cardoon, echinops, lilies and gypsophila. Gore, Southland, New Zealand....

We had to go to Invercargill today and although we're now in the height of summer the sky had lots of dark cloud and at one stage absolutely bucketed down with rain. We also drove out to Bluff and discovered 3 or 4 murals we hadn't seen before. On our return to Invercargill we had... Continue Reading →

The property is a standard small-town house and yard yet the occupants have made it super special by night! Tapanui,... Continue Reading →
We made the trip to Invercargill again today, this time because I wanted to go to the Southern Farmers Market and buy a dozen gorgeous Christmas cupcakes. They were every bit as beautiful as I'd seen in the photo on FB. I hadn't intended to come home with a spectacular new tablecloth but that happened... Continue Reading →
These photos of beloved Central Otago wildflowers were taken on my birthday trip on 31 October (spring in New Zealand). We'd stopped on the roadside near Cromwell to take a closer look at them. The bridge in the 2nd pic provides access to the town of Cromwell, and the route carries on to the Queenstown... Continue Reading →
These four photos are the last from a folder of images that I took on 28 October. It was a gorgeous afternoon and I really enjoyed my beautiful spring walk! ~ Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.
