meanwhile, back at the ranch...

It has been so warm and sunny at the house the last few days that the garden has bloomed some more.

I saw this guy out the kitchen window fighting a rival in the mirror front of an old microwave!
He spent a long time trying to fly at him but, of course, didn't succeed.

The next day, I noticed that he was smart enough to look behind the
door before resuming his defense of his world.


During some drizzle in the mornings, I was treated to many lovely rainbows. Some were very low in the trees behind the house.

Wednesday around the World


This is a Stewart Island Robin, only found on Stewart Island at the bottom of New Zealand. We were fortunate to see it when we toured there a while back.

Wednesday around the World


The sky is always fascinating. I love this cloud over Mt Taranaki that looks like a tornado.

spring is early in Hawera!

We went to King Edward Park in Hawera for a little exercise
and were pleasantly surprised at the burst of spring that we found.
