architecture in the south island

I always am impressed with the different styles of architecture I find
as we wander the countryside. 


Tupare gardens

I found some great color in the archives on this cold and rainy day
and thought I'd share with you.


A nice surprise

I bought a 2-inch square pot of a Jelly Bean Plant in the early part of
spring and it seems to be happy.

While photographing it for this blog post, I noticed the symmetry of the 'beans' and that
made me smile because I like the world organized.

Then, while walking around the  yard  garden, I noticed the hebe bushes have the same symmetry.

And the smiles continue!
