A beautiful church. I love the bench and the story about Vera planting an acorn after she came from England as a war bride.

I just love that deep blue sky! That alone might induce me to visit NZ at this time of year.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sunlit Sunday is such a nice way to connect with new people.

I've never seen a sky that blue, the little white church with the red roof is beautiful!
Thanks for visiting me in Normandy, all the best for 2015.

The red roof of the church just pops against the lovely blue sky. Beautiful!

Super photos, and such a clear sky. Delightful.

A fine church picture. The red roof sets this church apart and has resulted in an eye-catching image.

I think it's wonderful that the story of how the tree came to be planted there has been told. I hope many people enjoy the shelter of the oak while sitting on the bench.

Welcome back to Sunlit Sunday!
