ocean views

 No matter how many times I see it, the ocean always amazes me when I see it.
These islands are called the Sugar Loaf Islands which surround an underground volcano.

Lichen covers many rural buildings and fences in Taranaki.

A touch of the Southern US in New Plymouth!

I am curious what these walls would be used for. 

There is a stream to the right, just below the trees and I wonder if the two are connected.

Wild onions are everywhere along the road at this time of year. I love seeing them.

White lilies grow wild in many paddocks around the area.


Wednesday around the World

For some reason, this art deco building makes me smile every time we
go by it on the main street in Pahiatua.

Show us your world by linking up below!

I finally had some great weather for photos of the garden.
