Warmth on a Cool Day

We had to go to Invercargill today and although we're now in the height of summer the sky had lots of dark cloud and at one stage absolutely bucketed down with rain. We also drove out to Bluff and discovered 3 or 4 murals we hadn't seen before. On our return to Invercargill we had... Continue Reading →

Fixated

A lion rests either side of a short ramp leading to the Dunedin Botanic Garden winter garden glasshouse. One lion slumbers while the other regards visitors with fixed stare.

A Cover Like No Other

It was love at first sight when I saw the gorgeous cover of Kay's fourth book of poems; my favourite book cover ever. The beautiful face, soulful eyes and bright colours radiate pure joy and wonder that go straight to my heart, satisfying my deepest longings for colour. ~ Upturned, poems by New Zealand writer...

Spec-tacular Giraffe

Very stressy yesterday afternoon, my driver's license had expired and I didn't know if they'd issue me a new one.

Ostriches

We visited Invercargill today and before leaving for home went to First In Windsor for refreshments.

Three separate photos taken by Nigel, edited... Continue Reading →

Bright-Eyed Bus

Look at this travelling bus with bright friendly eyes! We headed out for a walk this morning and decided to visit a cafe in Gore. While walking down the street in town we spied this interesting bus. The couple who owned it were there and we chatted a bit, mostly because a name was painted... Continue Reading →

Food Colouring

We walked down to town to pick up a few groceries from our local New World supermarket and I was attracted to the bakery cake cabinet. This little cupcake is so cute with its lavender icing and googly eyes! Although the googly eyes are great fun it was the turquoise and lavender rose-shaped cupcakes that had... Continue Reading →
