Happy New Year from Hastings, New Zealand

Happy New Year

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red Blooms

Red Blooms

Good morning from a cool and wet day here in Hastings.  It is already New Year’s Eve.  Soon I will be going out to fight the crowds just to do my shopping. Such fun.

So Cee Neuner has asked us for our red blooms.  As everyone knows I have literally hundreds of rose images – a lot of them red.  So rather than bore everyone with yet more red roses I have gone for a couple of different blooms.

First up is this gorgeous amaryllis that I found at Napier Cemetery.

And then there is this bottle brush.

It has been an interesting year for me.  But I am going in the right direction and really appreciate all the support I received from all my blogging friends. So a big thank you to everyone out there. See you all in the New Year.
