Love this footpath with the trees and the way the light filters through it. It’s located on Bridle Path Road just before the Ferrymead Park.

A very stylish hat from Sue Wootton

My friend Emma and I went antique shopping today and ended up at the Ferry Antique Centre and spent quite some time trying on hats. This is one of the more elaborate hats we both tried on – it’s quite Victorian in its design with the parasol on top. The hat was designed by Sue Wootton and you can find more of her work at the antique centre in Woolston.

Wildflowers in Hagley Park

Wildflowers in Hagley Park opposite the Botanic Gardens. I’ve never noticed these flowers before but I’m guessing they’ve been there for years based on how many there are there. I’m not sure what they are called. Whatever they are, they are lovely and I’m guessing they will cover a lot more of the park in a few year’s time.

CityUps FESTA – Transitional Architecture Festival

October 25, 2014

I got along to the CityUps event that is part of FESTA. It was fantastic – so much to look at and who doesn’t like pretty colourful lights. Such an awesome accomplishment by all of those involved and it was wonderful to see so many people in the city enjoying themselves. FESTA is the festival of transitional architecture – probably an ‘only in Christchurch’ type event due to the fact that we have entire city blocks empty.
