Here's an apple tree we came across yesterday when we went for a local country drive. The tree was by the roadside but Nigel had stopped to take a photo of something else. There was a fair bit of bird activity, which lured me out of the car. Just had my cellphone so detail's not... Continue Reading →
Early winter here in New Zealand, the (deciduous) trees are shedding their leaves. I love the autumn season but still sad to see those lovely colours falling to the ground to slowly fade, waste away and decay. Still pretty though, when we did a local walk on 05 June. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. Photos... Continue Reading →
I took this hollyhock photo in Clyde, Central Otago, New Zealand just a few days before we went into L4 lockdown, 22 March 2020. Another beauty!

I wonder how long the stand will continue to support its heavy burden? We look at it with a mix of horror and fascination! These... Continue Reading →

An ephemeral roadside lake. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. We were enjoying a walk up the road when I remarked to Nigel about how clear the water was in this puddle. He took the time to get a photo, it's lovely! The following images are cropped from the same photo ... Click on either to... Continue Reading →
At school we had a game called Bullrush where someone would yell "Bullrush" and you had to try to run to the other side of a sportsfield while avoiding a whole lot of other kids in the middle who would try to catch you. It was rough - they'd often grab you or tackle you... Continue Reading →
The magic Colchicum. These two photos were taken by Nigel on 10 April 2020 when we wandered up the road for our exercise walk. He took one other - which I published yesterday as a single image. We were amazed how the strip of flowers was so dense with colour. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.... Continue Reading →
