No Greater Love

Stained glass church windows .. I haven't seen these in real life, yet I'm in awe! Feeling very grateful to Bishop Matthew Gunter, Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac /northeast and northcentral Wisconsin USA, who shared the first photo on Facebook. I asked permission to use it and he kindly provided me with photos of... Continue Reading →

Local Church

Love this church which sits in the residential area further along our street. The two other churches in town are near the shops. I feel more connection with this one, abiding with us in our neighbourhood. Its simple, white, classic style feels welcoming and familiar. Photos taken in autumn, 06 May. Tapanui, West Otago, New...

Fab Foliage

Shrubs, trees and leaves flaunting autumn colour in Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand on 06 May. These were taken the day after I took the Green and Gold photos I showed you yesterday.

Upfront

These photos were taken from the path in front of the propagation house, only a few years old, of the Dunedin Botanic Garden. On the opposite side of the road is the native plant collection. The long narrow garden in front of the propagation facility, shown below, is planted in natives. It's lovely! New Zealand.... Continue Reading →

Native Garden

The native collection in the Dunedin Botanic Garden is simply outstanding. We regularly visit in order to enjoy the beauty and learn about the various species. They have an amazing variety of native plants, including many that we don't normally see because they don't naturally occur in the south. New Zealand. Click on any photo... Continue Reading →

Oxalis purpurea

There are many species of Oxalis and most are terribly invasive and difficult to control or eradicate, but some are so pretty! When I was wandering through the amazing rock garden in Dunedin Botanic Garden on 20 May 2021, these captured my attention. Oxalis purpurea (exotic). New Zealand. Click on any photo to enlarge.

Bobbly Tree

We were driving from Moa Flat toward Heriot when I spotted this unusual tree, up a bank and by the fence of a farm paddock. You'd think it was topiary, cloud pruning perhaps, but that seems unlikely in this situation. Something of a mystery but very interesting irrespective of whether it's a natural phenomenon or...
