California dreaming


So lately on my days off I've been pushing myself to get out walking again. While we were in lockdown it got too easy to stay home and vegetate so last week I spotted these California Poppies outside a property near the footpath. I'd say someone probably sprinkled a load of wildflower seeds over Autumn so they are sprouting now and don't they make a nice range of colour?


This one is a Purple Vine creeper that has been climbing over my neighbour's wall - the flowers are so vibrant.


And this one is a path that I follow on one of my nature walks around town.

Looks like a lovely path to stroll along. The colour of the poppies and the purple creeper are spectacular. They certainly brighten up the day :)

Oah... thank you. Earworm.
Beautiful flowers and poppies are my favs.
Still, will have to listen to that song... 8C here, maybe a good idea to warm up to this.

Nothing like flowers and blooms to brighten one's mood.

The vine creeper is my favourite.

Wow that purple is an eye-popper. See if you can find out what it is. I'd love to know.

Maori Rock Carvings

One from when we were in Taupo earlier this year is this Maori Rock Carving which is only accessible via water on a boat. We booked a chart...
