It's the middle of autumn and we are still waiting for cooler weather--don't get me wrong, I am NOT complaining at all! We have had some cool evenings and nights but only had a fire in the fireplace last night for the first time.
The garden thinks it's spring, I think. My camelia has buds, one azalea has two blooms on it, the jasmine keeps blooming now and then, some mini-pokers bloomed a second time. and the rest....well, just look!!
It's easy to take in the every-day beauty around you and forget to record it in a photograph, but I did manage to shoot these scenes of Mt Taranaki. With or without clouds and/or snow it's a great sight.
