Wild Side Again

The glorious riot of colour again.. another four photos taken by me when we drove along the East Roxburgh road on 25 September 2022 and came across this spring display of profuse yellow and pink blossom at a private property, on the road frontage.

The Wild Side

When we drove to East Roxburgh on Sunday afternoon, 25 Sept, I was delighted when we drove past this glorious riot of colour along the road frontage of a private property.

Lovely On A Good Day

Spring in Tapanui on a fine weather day, 11th September ~but today we're back to winter; snowed on the hill. Spring's fickle! West Otago, New Zealand.

Pink & White Divide

We happened upon this blossom bonanza yesterday south of Roxburgh (out in the countryside, further south than the orchard in yesterday's post). The beautiful blossom, in pink and white, covered the hillside between the road and the mighty Clutha River / Mata-Au. Such an awesome pleasure to see all this before the blossom disappears. Central... Continue Reading →

These photos were taken 25 March 2022, autumn in NZ. A beautiful day and we were on our way home from visiting... Continue Reading →
