tupare garden

These were taken this week at Tupare Garden. It's a huge, free garden that is lovely, even in the fall.  Click here for their home page.

Tupare in sepia

Even thought it's getting to be winter here, there is still a lot of beauty around if you look for it. These shots were taken today at Tupare Gardens, just outside of New Plymouth.

poet's bridge

This is "Poet's Bridge"
The bridge was paid for with winnings bet on a horse called "Poet".
Not quite as romantic as you thought, is it?!



I love how the post office has boxes accessible from the street. This set has a sliding pane in front of them, but most are totally reachable from the street.

These boxes sit beside a cove at the entrance to the pier.
