Even though it's officially winter, the sun was out this weekend so Hubby and I went for a drive. Despite the season, we did find some great color and beauty.
These photos were taken at Lake Mangamahoe.
Pukekura Park in New Plymouth is where these were taken. Most of the trees here in Taranaki are different kinds of pine (it grows extraordinarily fast here) so 'autumn' color is rather sparse. I have no explanation for the trees and bushes blossoming at this time of year!
