Even though most of the native trees here in New Zealand are evergreens of one kind or another, we have two ornamental cherry trees in the front
yard garden that provide a bit of autumnal color. Here is one of them in its fall glory.
I'm sure these trees have been here since the house was originally build and was used as the homestead before the bigger house down the drive was built. Over the years, they obviously weren't pruned or shaped, so the limbs are askew and the trees are quite unique. I find the huge limbs interesting as they appear to have shiny bands all along them.
I also found this little wax eye flitting around.
