Flowers of Home

The garden we currently have is "inherited". We moved into our rental house in February this year and we didn't recognise all of the plants so its been interesting to find out what they are. Even with plants we know, its often a mystery what colour the flowers will be until they bloom. We've just... Continue Reading →

Colours of Flowers

There was an eye-catching array of different flower colours at Queens Park, Invercargill when we were there on 13 November.

We were walking across the bridge and had neared the other side when I glanced down... Continue Reading →

Peony or Paeony

I love the waves of different flowers cycling through this spring season. Now peonies are coming in to bloom. We found this beautiful bloom when walking through Gore Gardens on 02 Nov 2018. There were a couple of blooms, heads hanging downwards, and I went over and lifted one to see what it was like,... Continue Reading →

Hunger is Not a Harbour

"I was leaving Amsterdam and moving back to Paris, having been in London before that, Paris even before that and years before Ireland so there was this questioning of why don’t I stay put, what was the attraction of the next step, had I really carved my footprint into where I was before looking out...

Roaring Meg

We were back in Queenstown this morning to pick up the new lenses for my glasses and then we returned home via Central Otago. On our way through the Kawarau Gorge I asked Nigel to stop at the Roaring Meg carpark. From here you get good views of the Kawarau River rushing through the gorge.... Continue Reading →
