Stained glass church windows .. I haven't seen these in real life, yet I'm in awe! Feeling very grateful to Bishop Matthew Gunter, Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac /northeast and northcentral Wisconsin USA, who shared the first photo on Facebook. I asked permission to use it and he kindly provided me with photos of... Continue Reading →
Love this church which sits in the residential area further along our street. The two other churches in town are near the shops. I feel more connection with this one, abiding with us in our neighbourhood. Its simple, white, classic style feels welcoming and familiar. Photos taken in autumn, 06 May. Tapanui, West Otago, New...

Native beeches aren't deciduous so the bush looks much like this all year. The reserve is part of the Blue Mountain range, Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. Our visit,... Continue Reading →

When we were over on the East Coast last week we spied this eye-catching front fence decorated with critters, and flowers. Adorable! South Island, New Zealand.
After leaving Stanleys Hotel at Macraes we headed out of the village in the direction of Middlemarch, the next leg of our homeward journey. The weather had worsened and it was steady light rain. Nigel leaned out of the car to get these photos for me as I was entranced by the old cart parked... Continue Reading →
Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand ~12 May. For the crocodiles see my 2017 post. Unfortunately they've since painted over every single one!
