I spotted this old wagon when we did the long country drive on back roads through farmland, technically in Southland as the regional boundary is close to where we live. We were nearing...

And then (taken 22 Dec) native mistletoe, and astelia berries, Black Gully near... Continue Reading →

Quite A Sight

We paid a visit to Bannerman Park in Gore today to see how the rhododendrons are doing. Some are finished, some are a bit past it, some are just right! Really loved this colourful view. Gore, Southland. New Zealand.

White Tulips

I thought you may enjoy these WHITE tulips! ~note the beautiful lemony multi-petal beauties in the 2nd photo, they're lovely and fluffy-looking, making me think of meringue 😀 Edendale area, Southland, New Zealand 22 October.

Hidden Colour

Hidden Colour. Glimpses of bright colour through trees revealed the presence of these colourful tulips - they were further along the same road as my recent big tulip-block photos - but single fields - and on the opposite side of the road. Seaward Downs, Edendale area, Southland, New Zealand. 22 October.

Big Colour
