Good morning from a grey and miserable day here in Hastings.
So to brighten up my day again I have gone for the challenge by Where’s my backpack? and the theme this week is yellow. And to keep up with my kiwi theme as well I have gone for New Zealand natives for both fauna and florals.
These photos were taken last spring when the kowhai were out in full bloom. They are a popular flower for a lot of the birds but in particular for the tui. The tui is also called the parson bird as it has a small tuft of white feathers under it’s beak just like a ministers collar.
I could also put this in the Look Up, Look Down challenge by Debbie at Travel with Intent. As here are some photos of the reflections of the tree in the stream beneath it. The colours were amazing.
I spent a lot of time around here.
