It is nearly three weeks since I left the land of the long white cloud, one of the big one's sayings....his father was born in NZ! The here photos have been on our main computer and I have had to wait for the right time to show you.

From Kate's studio/my bedroom....upstairs.


A line of gingko trees in town, past their best but the show of leaves under the trees was beautiful, golden butterflies' They are very slow growing trees but worthwhile when  you see them in their full autumn glory!

Another rooster!

About to dive off the upstairs balcony!  Such a good game!

A beautiful sunset.

My wintersweet, chimonanthus praecox. I love it!
Hopefully the next post might show some creativity here!


  1. Awww, I remember those moments too!

  2. Ginkos are so beautiful in the fall! I'm not familiar with the chimonanthus but it looks like a pretty bloom. Great pictures, thanks for sharing Mrs.A!

    1. Thankyou all for comments! Celia, the wintersweet is a very ordinary bush until the Autumn when the leaves begin dropping off to reveal the little buds and then the waxy flowers. The scent is divine, spicy and sweet! Worth waiting for ! Mrs A

  4. Beautiful photos, Mrs A. Enjoy your time there.

  5. Such gorgeous images, I love the rooster! Dropping by via FYBF.
