A Photo a Week: Brighten up your day

Sunny Amaryllis

The other day I had a very early dentist appointment.  It was in Havelock North, just to the east of Hastings.  It is only 15 minutes to drive there.  I don’t normally drive around Havelock North.  I left home with plenty of time.  Or so I thought.  I got lost.  I stopped several times to google where the dentist is.  I got even more lost.  So I went back to the centre of the township and finally found the right road, after driving through a supermarket car park.  Needless to say I wasn’t happy with myself.  Then I got told that I would need to pay out nearly $800 for a tooth implant. (hopefully the rest of it will be subsidised).  So I was not a happy chappy.

Then I saw these cream coloured amaryllis in the sun.  So the cell phone came out.  I have noticed that the sun is getting lower and lower in the sky.  So it makes for a lot of great affects with back lighting.

There was also a tub of cream coloured petunias.

Again backlit.  My day was much brighter for seeing this, and for no-one stopping me from taking these photos.

Perfect for Nancy at nancy merrill photography and her prompt this week.


Singing in the Rain: Part 2


Good morning from a sunny Hastings.

I have been getting up at 5.15 AM for a few days now just to do my blog.  Actually my son has to get up this early to go to bible study so I thought I would get up to make sure he gets up and then sit down in the peace and quiet to do my blog.  It has been great as it now takes me about 2 hours just to read everyones’ blogs and then do mine.  It leaves me more time during the day to get my knitting done.

Anyway here is the second part to my raindrop photos.  There were just too many to show yesterday. The above photo is a pohutakawa – have fun trying to pronounce that one.  It is a native New Zealand flowering tree.






Roses of course.




I think these are petunias – correct me if I am wrong.


Daisies I think, or at least part of the family of daisies.


A naked lady.  I just love this pink colour.  It is so fresh.


I missed this hibiscus photo yesterday.


A touch of green.

It was hard to chose my favourites.
