I had seen photos of the Blue Puya on the Christchurch Botanic Garden’s Facebook page. What a striking an unusual plant – so I had to check it out for myself. I was just going to photograph the plant but as often happens when I have a camera, a wax eye and its fledgeling started landing on the plant.
On a visit to the Ilam Gardens today, I came across these wee cuties. I suddenly forgot all about photographing blossoms and daffodils.
I did a short video of the ducklings as well to capture maximum cuteness.
A reasonably friendly black swan has taken up residence by the Terraces. I wouldn’t get too close though – they can be pretty aggressive if they want too. Still, it adds a certain extra bit of style and grace to this strip of Avon River.
It’s that time of year again! I never tire of watching them jump around the paddock, they are just so delighted about being alive.
