Travel Theme: The Green, Green Grass of Home.


Good morning from a cool but sunny Hastings day.

Yesterday I headed over to Napier with two friends and we had a great time wandering around Marine Parade and taking some crazy photos.  While there I also managed to find some great grasses for Ailsa’s challenge at Where’s my backpack?.


But when I think of grass this song always pops into my mind.

So here are some of my green grass photos of home.


A couple of Pakowhai Park – such lush green grasses.


And then one from my lawn in the front.

    1. Our autumn lasted a long time this year. I think it was because we had very early frosts and then warmer weather – I think it confused the trees. Plus this park is somewhat protected from the extremes of weather due to the tall pines surrounding it.


  1. Listening to Tom as I type. It was one the songs I used to play (on my guitar) for my Grandmother. She and her peers would listen to anything my cousins and I played…and love it. Makes me feel positively ancient when I see 1967 on it though. At least an excuse for the aching joints…at times.
