A Photo a Week: Nature’s Music

Nature's Music - Tui

This week the prompt from Nancy is music.  I don’t have photos of human musicians but found this photo of our native Tui that I took on Wednesday.

I love going into the park and just listen to the music of the birds.  It is spring now and the birds are especially loud as they carry out their courtships.  Tuis are the loudest of all.  They swoop around in pairs and stop to feast on the golden kowhai trees which are particularly sweet flowers.  I actually just stood at one point with my eyes closed just to listen to the beautiful music.  It is very restful and calming on the soul.

You can check out this challenge at Nancy’s blog.

Floral Friday: Gerberas

Gerbera

Good morning from a grey morning here in Hastings.

For this week’s Floral Friday post I found these gorgeous gerberas at the flower house at Cornwall Park.  This is where they prepare the flowers before they plant them around the park.  It is a great place to get some great photos without anyone yelling at me.  At the moment they are fill of gerberas and african violets and the colours are just amazing.
