Two photos from yesterday morning's sunrise (looking westwards!)
I have not changed the colours at all.
At this time of year, I go for my daily walk very early in the morning, usually at about 5.30 a.m., as it is far too hot later in the day. I am not going to walk anywhere when it's 32 degrees Centigrade, which is what is forecast for later today!
This morning I detoured to see if the cactus I have seen on other summer mornings is still alive, and still flowering during the night...
As you can see, it is flowering beautifully. The sun is not properly up yet, and the delicate pink tips of the petals are still clearly visible...
Last Thursday afternoon, our lovely little Jack Russell dog was put to sleep.
He was 16 years old, and up until a few months ago, he was the gentle, well-behaved,
happy little chap he had always been.
It's so good to see our young trees getting their spring foliage (although
they're getting buffeted by the wind out there today).
I love autumn even more, except for the horrible fact
that it id followed by winter...
I have finally made the effort to use the new method of setting up a post.
I much prefer the previous system, but I suppose I will get used to it - not much choice, really.
Waihi Beach on a wintry sort of day. Mayor Island (Tuhua) in the background.
Same beach, different day. Manu enjoying the water.

Sunrise, with moon.
