Lovely Lilac

Driving through East Roxburgh yesterday I spotted lots of lovely lilac flowers.. a whole hedge! so I asked Nigel to turn around. We were both glad we went back, it was a lovely spot and nice standing near to the flowery hedge. Brightest time of day though, difficult to get nice shots. Central Otago, New... Continue Reading →

Lilac and Love

I found this gorgeous lilac bloom at the entry to a country cemetery today and felt love lingering at one of the memorials. This open and spacious cemetery is located at the very small settlement of Millers Flat, near Roxburgh, Central Otago. Some of the older graves date back to the late-1800s/early-1900s, and from what... Continue Reading →

Fowl Business

Fowl business: if you've ever seen a guinea fowl rushing along, apparently compelled by extreme urgency, they're very funny! Happened several times today at Maple Glen Garden in Southland, New Zealand. And by the way, they can be noisy! ~pics taken when they were more chilled out. Click on any photo to enlarge.

Cinnamon Mushrooms

I was surprised and delighted to come across these beautiful cinnamon-coloured mushrooms growing in rough grass at Dunedin Botanic Garden on 29 April 2021 (autumn in New Zealand). I didn't see any others like them.

Local Church

Sacred Space

Love seeing this church, further along our street. I took these pics as I returned from photographing the colourful foliage I've been showing you in recent posts, 05 May 2021 (autumn, end of day).

Peacock and company

Peacock lazing in late afternoon autumn sunshine after a rainy day, and a little hen or bantam or "chook" hanging around - quite a busy little thing! Maple Glen garden on 04 April 2021. Glenham, Southland, New Zealand. Click on any photo to enlarge. Text and photos by Liz; Exploring Colour (2021)

Blurring The Boundary

Bright yellow flowers break through the boundary of this property in Tapanui that has a silver fence facing the footpath. We often walk by here. The first photo was taken at a very bright time of day earlier in March and when the plant was at its best. The second and third photos were taken... Continue Reading →

All Together Now

Pansies put on a great show in Queens Park, Invercargill on 26 Jan 2021. This is the same park where we enjoyed the glorious gazanias. The pansies had company - lavender and heuchera. Cheerful display! Southland, New Zealand. Click on any photo to enlarge. The purple foliage is one of the many kinds of heuchera... Continue Reading →
