The Other Way.

This is looking in the opposite direction towards the Tararua Mountains, which in winter are covered in snow.

My Backyard ....

.... well, the farmer next doors back yard .... he's kindly said I can tootle round it on my bike and photograph whatever, love it!!
Please note, we finally have a beautiful, fine warm day ...... how many more will we be blessed with .......

Clothesline Boyd.

I couldn't believe seeing Boyd launch himself up to the bars on the clothes hoist, then climb to the top while I was hanging the clothes out. He did have to be rescued ........

Morning Tea.

I have been checking through some of my recent photos, and noticed that this dragonfly has a wee moth in it's mouth. I'm quite pleased with this capture.

Boredom .......

This was the only thing that stayed still in the gale winds we're still having!

Steam Train.

What a beautiful sight going past our gate, hopefully this will be a regular weekend visitor.

Another Sunset.

I've almost forgotten what these look like, the weather here really has turned to custard! How I wish for global warming .......
