It’s springtime, and Hagley Park is full of daffodils.
Hi Michelle, I’ve been in Cristchurch almost ten years ago. I love your city as I love New Zealand. A lot! I’m very happy you started this photoblog about your city and I am very sorry to not have visited it before.
Absoloutely stoked to find your blog dedicated to CHCH!!!! I am an ex christchurian, and have been living in an extremely hot mining town in the north west of Australia for 2 1/2 yrs where at the moment is 40 degrees + every day…usually now 46 and gonna be above for a few months…its red dirt, and no greens apart from what they call salt bush that the feral camels and super skinny cows eat. I feel quite homesick at the mo, as i haven’t been back to visit yet ( home in Feb) but seeing all your inner city pics almost made tears spill out!!! I lived in town for a long time, like chester st east, cashel st. @ mins if that to get to the dux, ( that was pretty much my lounge room, along with the rest of the crew!!!) Can you do a blog sesh on one of those Tuesday evening art exhibitions?? Free vino, and all the same great faces to be seen? Anyway, please keep up the pics, i know it can be a bit dishearting when you put effort into a blog and not terribly much response, but zillions of people have a bit of a geeze and never leave a comment!!!! I had a blog about life in OZ, with pics of snakes and lizards and us 3 kiwi girls getting smashed and all, but haven’t dedicated any attention to it as theres been minimal feedback ( although everyone has said, yeah i’ve seen it and check it, but don’t leave commments!! Facebook i guess is the best way to keep in touch via computer means!!!0 anyway, don’t stop with the pics, its swells my heart with Aotearoian pride!!
Thanks for the enthusiastic comments! I have family living in Perth, so can begin to imagine how different it is for you. I wouldn’t trade places 🙂 like the green too much.
I’ll definitely keep going with the pics, so keep coming back for a dose of home.
[…] Daffodil in Hagley Park | Christchurch Daily Photo – Paul @ Leeds DP: That fish dish looks great! I am not much of a foodie at all but I know what I like. Any place recommended by Rick Stein has to be. Paul @ Leeds DP: He looks a fine cat, love that he is perched on the till, not sure it looks comfy though. […]
Good day! Would you mind if I share your blog with
my facebook group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Thanks
