I always find it amusing that the BK's here (at least, all the ones that I've been to) in NZ have Americana decorations. I finally remembered to take a photo to show you.

I never get tired of a foamy coastline.

This azalea sneaked itself into full bloom before I really noticed it was there!

I love the little details at the bottom of each petal.

the ugly tree
Well, it turns out they are cherry trees with bookoo blooms! (I have been saying 'bookoo' all my life but don't remember where I heard the phrase. I'm sure it's an Americanization of French.) Anyway, it has been quite windy these last few days and the grass is covered with tiny white petals. The wind finally died down so I could get some photos and I think they look so great against the blue sky.
Grace had no intention of letting me shoot alone.

We planted these bulbs just after we moved in and promptly forgot about them until they bloomed!

waiting for this weather
It's rainy and icky out today so I pulled up a photo to warm me up.
The only decent photo on this rainy day in Taranaki.

sunny yellow pom poms
I don't know what this flower is but it definitely caught my eye at Hollard Gardens the other day. Any help with identification will be appreciated.
These are just two of the many welcome swallow beauties that flit around, shining bright blue in the sunlight. I am pretty sure a pair are nesting in our wood room behind the garage.
Hubby's eagle eye
While we were at Hollard Gardens this weekend, Hubby got a glint in his eye and reached for the camera. This algae on a tree trunk is what he captured.

more birds at virginia lake
These two are coots.
swans at virginia lake
I was excited to see white swans at this lake since black swans are the norm here.
