We've had four wonderful days in
the Bay of Islands
also known as the "winter-less north" of
The days were warm and still
and the evenings quite cool.
As you can see roses are still in bloom
but so are the camellias
and the sweetly fragrant earlicheer daffodil!
The poor flowers aren't sure if it is
winter, spring or summer!
I've shown you lots of images of Russell before.
Top right of this mosaic is the Soren Larsen
a brigantine tallship used as a sail training ship,
brave young people atop the mast
learning the finer points of sailing.
I'm joining Mary for Mosaic Monday
Wishing you all a happy new week
I'm feel re-energised and ready
for another three days at work!
Take care and
be kind to one another
Merci à bientôt
