driving taranaki

Lichen covers many rural buildings and fences in Taranaki.

A touch of the Southern US in New Plymouth!

I am curious what these walls would be used for. 

There is a stream to the right, just below the trees and I wonder if the two are connected.

Wild onions are everywhere along the road at this time of year. I love seeing them.

White lilies grow wild in many paddocks around the area.


Wednesday around the World

For some reason, this art deco building makes me smile every time we
go by it on the main street in Pahiatua.

Show us your world by linking up below!


spring flowers

I finally had some great weather for photos of the garden.


gulls on an island

We went to New Plymouth today and stopped at some of the lookouts.
The water was such a lovely color in the sun, but the photos didn't even come close!
So, I will show you one of the Sugar Loaf Islands  and the gulls on hanging out on it.
