Crazy About Clyde

Back on track about the autumn visit to Central Otago on 30 April when I had a Momentous ice-cream treat and saw Snow and Sheep out the car window. Fast-forward to where we ended up.. in Clyde. I really love beautiful Clyde! Clyde, Central Otago, New Zealand We drove the Earnscleaugh back road with its... Continue Reading →

Holding On and Letting Go

Autumn foliage colours complement this pretty church and brighten up the street frontage, further up the street from where we live. The photos were taken during my walk yesterday, a glorious sunny, blue sky day. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand My title is taken from a quote I read this morning, I've found it's attributed...

Walnut and Washing

Soon after moving to a new place, issues tend to arise that require problem-solving. After cleaning up the washing machine that came with the house it's gone well apart from a minor hose leak. With relief I got the first lot of laundry out to the washing line. All good. But there was little sun... Continue Reading →

Falling Foliage

Rimu is a New Zealand native tree that I'm very fond of, draped in a cascade of flowing foliage. We looked at some young trees in the native garden at Queens Park, Invercargill on March 02, 2019. I won't add extra information as there's a brilliant rimu article here (it has great photos and includes... Continue Reading →

Green and Cream

This shrub is in Queens Park, Invercargill not far from the Eye Tree that I've posted about recently. The foliage has really eye-catching colours! Two shades of green and a creamy white. This is a cultivar of a native New Zealand species, Griselinia littoralis. Photos taken by Liz Mar 02, 2019. Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand... Continue Reading →

Take It Away

The gale winds in Southland are legendary and Nigel's advice is to keep your mouth shut - or inflate. Ha! The unrelenting gales shape trees into a permanent stoop, some have become well-known icons and a magnet for photographers. Photos taken 17 Feb. Not famous (yet). Southland, New Zealand Takeaway Bonsai -- photos by Nigel... Continue Reading →

Sunday In Southland

Today in the late afternoon we took off to the Southland coast for a break, just for a few hours. We stopped briefly in Fortrose and then drove on to our destination of Waipapa Point. There was a strong gusty wind at the coast making photography really difficult, rare lulls were only milliseconds in duration.... Continue Reading →

Waikaia Poem

Yesterday afternoon after an art gallery event in Gore, we made a spur-of-the-moment decision to drive to Waikaia for pizza in the pub rather than return to our too-warm home in Gore (height of summer here in New Zealand). The photos here were all taken yesterday and I'm also presenting a Waikaia poem by Kay... Continue Reading →

Last Few Plants

Here I'm finishing the last photos from our Dunedin Botanic Garden walk-around on 17 January 2019. First, a bright show of dahlias. Second, an Australian tea tree species Leptospermum morrisonii. Third, Luma apiculata or Chilean Myrtle. Fourth, mainly for my own reference: a NZ native Olearia capillaris. Can't say I really noticed it before but... Continue Reading →
