Beautiful weather today, Sunday in New Zealand. We paid a return visit to the historic Black Horse Brewery daffodils at Weatherstons, near Lawrence in the Clutha district, Otago.
The glorious riot of colour again.. another four photos taken by me when we drove along the East Roxburgh road on 25 September 2022 and came across this spring display of profuse yellow and pink blossom at a private property, on the road frontage.

End-of-day I trudged out to the line to get the washing, enjoying the melodious sounds of tūī song as I filled... Continue Reading →
