Travel Theme: Plants on the Road to Otane

Plants on the Road-

A glorious sunrise while on the road to Otane last Sunday.

Plants on the Road 1-

Some sheep eating the grass – they were rather shy and turned their backs to me.

Plants on the Road 2-

And an overgrown garden in front of this abandoned house.

Travel Theme: Daffodils by William Wordsworth

Keirunga Gardens-9499

I wander’d lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils,
Beside the lake, beneath the trees
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Pakowahai Parak-021

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretch’d in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

Pakowahai Parak-018

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: –
A poet could not but be gay
In such a jocund company!
I gazed – and gazed – but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought.

Pakowahai Parak-026

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills
And dances with the daffodils.

Pakowahai Parak-047
