On my trip to the Waikato on Wednesday,
the client I visited told me to look out for cows
I expected to see real cows but this is what she was
Isn't this one gorgeous.
We discovered a small herd of 8-10
life sized cows throughout the main street!
The last roses of Summer on my archway.
This is Pierre de Ronsard which I've shown you many times.
Such a worthwhile rose to have in the garden.
It is at it's best in Spring, but continues flowering through Summer
and as you can see above, well into Autumn too.
My only regret is it's lack of fragrance.
Dawn in my neck of the woods.
I'm up at 5am on my work days and
I captured this exquisite sky before I drove out the driveway.
I love photographing skies - what about you?
The May issue of New Zealand House & Garden
magazine arrived in my letterbox this week.
Usually the May issue focuses on Mothers Day
and spoiling our mothers, baking etc
but this one only gives a cursory nod to mothers.
Change - it is happening everywhere!
Someone who never changes is the Queen
and what an example she is to all of us!
Celebrating her 90th birthday and
63 years as the Monarch of Great Britain
and the Commonwealth.
New Zealand was a founding member of the Commonwealth
family in 1931 and we remain loyal to the Queen.
Congratulations Your Majesty!
Some days as I head off to work
I ask myself "why am I doing this at my age"
and I'm only in my seventies!!!
Last night we watched a wonderful BBC documentary
of the Queen's life.
The Queen "works" almost every day of the year.
The only days she doesn't have to read
the Parliamentary 'red box'
are her birthday and Christmas Day.
Now that is real dedication to duty.
God Bless the Queen.
