Easter Weekend

This Easter weekend we stayed at home and had the family come visit us. It was great to catch up with them all. We shopped and gave Dan a makeover, we played scrabble (on a board with tiles!), we played cards and drank wine. We went out for dinner together one night and had fish and chips the next, caught a train (bus) to Wellington and wandered around Te Papa - its amazing how much you can fit into a couple of days. I can see a trip to Brisbane sometime in the future!

We didn't quite manage a full family group photo but there's always another year or three, but I am happy with the photos I did get. These are a selection of them.

White flowers

I have no idea what these flowers are but they are growing amongst my fushia garden and are very pretty at the moment. Each year there are more of them and each year the white display is more impressive.

A C A C I A spells ME!

Acacia came visiting on the weekend. She is just five years old and we were spelling her name. When we asked her what it spelt she said "ME!"

Barton's Bush

Went for a short wander into Barton's Bush this afternoon. I was hoping for birds but instead I found fungi. The birds were there, I could hear them but they were hiding from me in the high canopy.

More from yesterday...

The colours of Autumn

Late afternoon on the last day of daylight savings in Harcourt Park, Upper Hutt. The colours of Autumn are almost everywhere you look.
