A red rose from the Botanic Garden’s rose garden (an absolute must see Christchurch attraction during summer). The roses are simply glorious. Have a happy valentine’s day, and if you’re single, then this rose is for you!
This is Memorial Avenue. It’s the main way into the CBD from the airport. As you can see it’s tree lined. It runs right through the ‘leafy’ and pricey suburb of Fendalton.
Delicate pink flowers seen in macro, snappd in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens.
I was recently on a photo blogging website that had flower macro shots on their list of cliché images. So this is me thumbing my nose at that comment. The cliché list was ridiculous, and if everyone stopped taking the type of shots on the (very long) list there wouldn’t be any daily photo blogs worth viewing! And no pictures of squirrels! Living in New Zealand (with no squirrels at all) I have to travel 12,000 miles to see a squirrel!
This sculpture is located right in front of the Christchurch Cathedral (the building in the background).
