White Tulips

I thought you may enjoy these WHITE tulips! ~note the beautiful lemony multi-petal beauties in the 2nd photo, they're lovely and fluffy-looking, making me think of meringue 😀 Edendale area, Southland, New Zealand 22 October.

Hidden Colour

Hidden Colour. Glimpses of bright colour through trees revealed the presence of these colourful tulips - they were further along the same road as my recent big tulip-block photos - but single fields - and on the opposite side of the road.

Lovells Flat Church

We've lived down south for years now and I never knew about a gorgeous rural church among farm fields at Lovells Flat! I spotted the steeple today while we were driving, and by returning to a gravel side road we'd just passed, we were able to make it to the church. This is a Presbyterian... Continue Reading →
