amazing autumn colours in new zealand
i guess for most of you it’s spring rather than autumn. but here the world is exploding in to colour in a last ditched attempt to hang on to the glorious summ
a bbq at the beach in summer on a hot day under a pohutakawa tree. it doesn’t get much more kiwi than that.
it’s been quite windy here of late
big winds bring no friends. especially if you are a tree. the one above was a little teeny tree which probably fell over because someone tripped on it.
and this one clonked to the ground next to me as i walked down the street. that could have had my eye out.
strange fig tree dangly airbourne roots. excellent.
what a brilliant idea – camouflaged leaves so they blend in with their surroundings.
poor picture i’m afraid, but this is a load of crushed shells and a teeny weeny metal tree in the dirt in downtown auckland.
i love this tree. i pass it most days, although it’s dark when i go by at this time of year (shorted day soon though so visibility should start to improve at some point)
still can’t believe in a place where this is what a forest looks like
it’s interesting to see what happens to the tree here in new zealand as the seasons progress. we arrived at the beginning of spring so we’ve seen all sorts of stuff start to happen.
these things remind me of similar nut-jobs that were around in london. no idea what they were called either.
i miss big british trees. but i’m beginning to love the native versions. like this comedically named ‘cabbage tree’
it’s a very strange place
