Into The Gardens

In Dunedin our motel was very close to the Dunedin Botanic Gardens so we were easily able to spend some time there, even though our time in Dunedin was short. Between us, we have a few photos of our mid-summer experience of these beautiful gardens even though we didn't have a lot of time! These... Continue Reading →

Heart of Gold

These striking lilies were blooming in the Gore Public Gardens when we wandered through on the evening of 20 Dec 2018. The white flowers, with golden centres like melted butter, were very eye-catching. Nigel took these lovely photos and I've cropped them for maximum effect. The first photo can be enlarged - please click on... Continue Reading →

Terrific Tulips

Couldn't take my eyes off these tulips when we were in Gore Public Gardens on 01 October 2018. Their bright golden flowers are showstoppers! Fortunately Nigel took some photos - his show the golden yellow of the blooms. I couldn't imagine a brighter yellow! I ditched my photos as they didn't capture the true colour.... Continue Reading →

Forsythia has been in bloom since very early spring and the blooms seem to be more profuse on bushes that have... Continue Reading →

Reds and Yellows

Saturday September 15, I'd spent some time wandering around in town in the morning and then in the afternoon we'd decided to pay a visit to the beautiful Southland private garden named Maple Glen. I had these photos in separate folders and looking at them last night I realised that I have some interesting red-yellow... Continue Reading →

Autumn Colour in Alexandra

These golden apples grabbed my attention when I was walking from the town centre to the Shaky Bridge. Actually, they stopped me in my tracks and I had to detour across the road to take a closer look. A wonderful crop of golden crab apples or crabapples; the tree was on the street edge of... Continue Reading →
