Sweet Spring

Pink spring blossom found in my home town of Gore recently. The first photo is one of three painted rocks placed in an out-of-the-way place near the Gore Gardens by a kindergarten. The pretty rocks had been donated by a local rest home. The words are in Maori and English "Stand tall with confidence". Gore,... Continue Reading →

Heaven Scent

Candicans and Heaven Scent The blue conifer can't resist the pretty pink magnolia. Her name is Heaven Scent. This morning was perfect for a waltz around the garden. As I approached I saw him leaning over, throwing his shadow in her direction. I sneaked behind to see what would happen. They're perfect for eachother, she... Continue Reading →

The weather can be pretty bleak in Southland, a lot of grey sky in winter. Colour is welcome! I'm not so keen... Continue Reading →

Melting Moments

I really like this poem by Damien B. Donnelly about seasons, change and time. I've affectionately dubbed it the Melting Moments poem... what I'm referring to are the melt-in-your-mouth buttery, soft biscuits sandwiched together with buttercream filling. Same or similar are Yo-yo's or Kisses. You take a bite and in a moment it's dissolved; a... Continue Reading →

Pretty and Pink, Two’s Company

Yesterday I posted about a pink house in Eastbourne Street, Caversham that I spotted while we were driving down the street. There's another pink house directly across the road and together they make quite a statement. Here's a photo taken by Nigel that includes both houses (as well as me getting my photo). Eastbourne Street,... Continue Reading →
