In my little town...

... the cherry blossoms are in full fluff.  Early this morning,  Sunday,  I took a stroll with my camera.  Imagine the sound of the tuis chortling and gulping, spoilt for choice with the nectar both from the cherries and the yellow kowhai, the sun shining, a few people using the money machine outside the bank, a few cars going past, people walking their dogs and everyone smiling because last night we won the netball.


  1. Jesus Christ! I am seeing this blogpost at 12.30audjnpbm on Sunday Sept 21st - having just returned from the pub with wifey! You have already been out on a sunny NZ morning tking pictures of the morning of the 21st! Bizarre!

  2. Yes, it's wonderful, isn't it! If you are ever concerned the world will stop, just come here, and you'll know it's already tomorrow! And here's a response to your comment already, hot off the press. Nightie Night!

  3. Lovely photos! Looks like a good place to live. The pictures also made me think of this site, to which I'm a regular visitor.

    Glad to make your acquaintance!

  4. It is a lovely little village, isn't it? I think our wisteria is just as gorgeous!

  5. Trousers - thanks for making yourself known here - and the bench blog is lovely too! Will pop in on you when I have a moment.
    Yep, you're right Suga - and I will post a pic of the wisteria soon.
