all time favorites

I haven't taken any photos lately, with moving and the holidays, so I thought I'd post some of my all-time favorite photos. Be glad I have limited them to these few--Hubby tells me we are closing in on 15,000 on the external hard-drive that was bought just to hold my our photos.


lupin--after the blooms

Being still quite new to gardens and flowers, I find strange things fascinating. This is the remains of a lupin that has flowered.


Some last looks before we move

We are moving moving house next week and don't know how extensive our garden will be, so we will only be taking a few plants with us. This is from one of my last looks around.

The wind blew this branch off one of my rose bushes, so I put it in a vase to enjoy.


wet Patea Christmas parade

On our way to Wanganui this weekend (in the rain), we just missed the Christmas parade at Patea.

Looks like Santa's a bit lean this year!
