The Herbaceous Border and Roses in the Botanic Gardens

December 19, 2014


The Herbaceous Border in the Botanic Gardens in one of my favourite spots in the gardens during summer. It’s fabulous to photograph and I’m always in awe of how quickly everything grows there. Such an asset to the gardens.


I also visited the rose garden and the one rose that really stood out to me was the one below due to its colouring.

The Spirit of Christmas is alive and well in Heathcote

December 17, 2014


I decided to come the long way home today as I’ve become increasingly frustrated with my commute down Ferry Road and the Ferrymead bridge intersection is nothing short of diabolical (try turning right onto Bridle Path Road – I dare you!). So to get back to my home in Mt Pleasant I took the scenic route through the beautiful Heathcote Valley and look what I discovered. There’s been a lot of work put into this, and I think it’s just awesome that people can go to so much trouble.

Nice one Backhouse Family! And a Merry Christmas to you too.

After recent events in Sydney and Pakistan, the world could certainly do with a lot more Love and Peace right now.

If you walk around the centre of Christchurch you begin to realise that the Giraffes are everywhere! I spotted this one on the Worcester Street bridge.
