Super Cute Cottage

Returning to the street after wandering a riverside path in Roxburgh, I spotted this cute old cottage on the other side. Further along I enjoyed seeing somewhat humourous exotic phoenix palms. They're funny because they're chopped off at the back on account of the power lines. Which makes the tops of the palms lop-sided and... Continue Reading →

Clutha at Roxburgh

The river photos are of the Clutha River at Roxburgh from a riverside path, Sunday 23 Jan 2022. The Māori name Mata-au references the swift surface current of the river. The rest of the photos were taken from a spot in a small section of pine trees where I paused to enjoy the nice setting... Continue Reading →

Australian Frangipani

Lovely tree with 'honey-scented' yellow flowers. Several small specimens can be found in the Australia Collection of the Dunedin Botanic Garden. I like the look of the flowers, you just know they're going to be scented! And they're a shade of yellow I really like. This photo was taken on 18 Jan 2022. I've posted... Continue Reading →

Pink Paws

Pink kangaroo paw flowers by an aviary at Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand. 18 January 2022. Anigozanthos, in the Australia Collection. These bright pink weird-looking blooms don't quite look real but when you're there they're real enough .. a great favourite with me!

Summer Red

Pōhutukawa flowers, our New Zealand 'Christmas Tree', are sensational. Here's three different examples we came across yesterday 18 Jan, at Dunedin Botanic Garden. We also saw plenty flowering in gardens along the south coast road to Taieri Mouth, on our way home. Click on any photo to enlarge. Metrosideros excelsa At the main top carpark... Continue Reading →

Summer Breeze

On Sunday afternoon in Gore we stopped to have a look at this long border garden, in a small reserve which has a massive war memorial as the main focus. The garden often looks attractive, populated with some of the larger flowering plants like hollyhocks, phlox, cardoon, echinops, lilies and gypsophila. Gore, Southland, New Zealand....
