Winter has hit us hard this year. I know we don’t get winters like many people around the world, in that it doesn’t snow and compared to some countries doesn’t get that cold. Then again we have really hot summers. It is all relative.
You may have noticed I haven’t been around here. Sorry, but I’ve been to Beechworth for the last few days.
I’ve had my greenhouse for over 6 months now and I still love it. One of the things I wanted to find out was would I be able to grow tomatoes in it during winter.
In my last garden update, I told you how we were removing a tree.
My car and other things have kept me busy this week, so I thought we could do another New Zealand Wanderings and look back at the Dunedin Botanical Gardens. They are stunning and you can’t help thinking autumn was perfect to see them.
Yesterday I wandered around the streets of Melbourne with a visitor from overseas and it seemed like a good idea to use the photos for a Weekend Wanderings post. Every now and then I am contacted by people who know me through the internet and then want to meet me when they come here.
Today sees us in Invercargill on Day 9 of my New Zealand Wanderings. This is going to be quick and I will explain more soon.
Really, today was all about trees and towns for day 4 of our New Zealand Wanderings. We photographed many trees, one much more special, but lots of others as well. Plus we went to a small town to check it out.
When you love macro photography, especially when photographing flowers we get ones that we love or become our favourite. For me, mine would have to be dahlias.
During the week I had a quick trip to Alowyn Gardens. I was there to talk about doing some workshops, but I also spent some time in the gardens and thought it would be a good post for Weekend Wanderings.
