Cornus Flowers in Bannerman Park

Perching Orchid

He took some photos as we both thought it looked attractive perched in the mature tree. I assume its one of our native orchids - we've seen plants just like this perched... Continue Reading →

To our delight we found excellent displays there again, all within easy walking distance of where we parked. Here's the first... Continue Reading →

Lit Up for Christmas

Last night I suggested to Nigel that we drive to Invercargill to look at the street decorations. As we were driving into the city we saw this private house all lit up for Christmas. It was amazing how much work they'd invested in dressing up their property for the festive season. Photos taken by Liz... Continue Reading →

Waikaia Happiness

Happiness is... a trip to Waikaia. We enjoy a trip into the back country so much and the village of Waikaia in the middle of nowhere is a fantastic place to go. Nigel and I went there on 20 October. I've already shared some photos from that day's trip - we covered a lot of... Continue Reading →

Birches and Band Rotunda

As you walk along the big main path that cuts through Queens Park in Invercargill you come across the band rotunda, a focal point of the Gardens. More recently, birches have been planted here and are notable for their extremely white trunks. Queens Park, Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand. Liz 01 Dec 2018 Text and photos...
