Autumn in the City

Oh how I love Christchurch in Autumn and greatly admire the early visionaries who planted our wonderful trees (especially those in the Botanic Gardens and Hagley Park).

This scene is by the Avon River on Oxford Terrace – just opposite the building development that will be The Terraces. As you can see, it’s a lovely spot to stop and have some lunch.

This rather stunning mural is going up on a wall of a new building on Kilmore Street. It’s going to be rather stunning once it’s finished. The artist is Melbourne-based Adnate

Mural on the Mexico Restaurant

The new Mexican restaurant on the corner of Hereford and Manchester Streets (it’s called Mexico), has this bright mural on the side of the building of Mexican characters. It was painted by artist Jacob Yikes (http://www.planetyikes.com). I really like the fact that murals are showing up on new developments, as it adds so much character to the city.

The Lemon Tree Cafe on St Asaph Street

Every time I walk past this cafe on St Asaph Street I think to myself I must go in there sometime. Well today I had the perfect excuse as I was working just down the road a bit and needed somewhere to have lunch.

The outside of the cafe really draws you in with the colourful planters and outdoor seating. But the magic is on the inside! Wow, what an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, artworks and décor, lots to look at. And the food and coffee was excellent too. And I wouldn’t lie about coffee being good, I’d just not mention it if it was bad. Yes, bit of a coffee snob.
