Sunday Stills: Roses are Red

Red Rose-430

Ed from over at Sunday Stills is feeling lazy this week so he has asked for our red photos.  I have so many photos of red roses. So here are a couple.

Cee’s Oddball Challenge: Odd Cacti in Napier

Freaky Plants-170

Good morning from a cool Hastings day.

Although Cee is taking a blogging break her challenges continue.  My photos today were taken on Saturday over at Napier.  I love exploring around where I live.  I know Hastings really well but not so much Napier.  So I need to remedy that.  And that is what we did.  I have showed photos from the sound shell and other parts of the CBD in Napier, but I have never actually walked down to this garden.  We had so much fun wandering around and taking silly photos.

Freaky Sculpture-083

There was this odd ball sculpture created by Laurie Karasek at the Ilam School of Fine Arts at the University of Cambridge.  It is a bio morphic form floating like a giant water lily.  Actually I would call it an oddball sculpture.  Apparently there was a competition which was paid for by Sir Lewis and Lady Harris of Brooklyn Station here in Hawke’s Bay.  For once I actually took a photo of a plaque explaining what this is supposed to be.

Cacti are amazing plants with oddball shapes.
