scenic waitara

We visited a magnolia and succulent garden in Waitara yesterday. Spring is finally on it's way!



These Waitara streetlights are different.

The plants in the first two photos are looking radiant! But I am especially intrigued by the arty street lamps in the last photo! Most unusual!

Wonderful perspective in the first view seeing the blue skies through the lovely pink blossoms ... usual succulent in the second. I don't recognize it.
Hugs and blessings,

Besides the streetlamps, I love what I'm assuming is an orange trash can in that last photo. Great design.

I love to travel and most of the time is via bloggers. Now I get to see New Zealand! You are just going into spring as we are just going into fall.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a message. You are my farthest away blogger friend.
