A burst of Fireworks

I was distracted by the fireworks exhibition at New Brighton Pier last night so today is a ‘twofor’ post…I’m not sure if that’s areal world but I think it’s a great description for two posts in one.

Now I know dandelions aren’t strictly flowers but I really like their ethereal qualities they remind me of the way the fireworks fall from the sky. One good breeze and those fluffy little seed heads will be scattered to the four winds.

First Tuesday in November

Most Kiwi’s and Aussies know what the first Tuesday in November means it’s Melbourne Cup Day, the race that ‘stops the nation’.  Synonymous with the race are the roses which are at their peak at Flemington Racecourse and in an omage to the day I’ve picked a rose growing in my friends garden.  The scent is divine and the colour strong and bold  image

From our place in the world, March heralded the start of Autumn or as it’s known in other parts of the world, Fall.

I was cheered to gather the last of my Dad’s roses from my garden to brighten our home on a cold and overcast day.

And yes, they smell as good as they look, colour and fragrance a stunning combination.

Enjoy!
