  1. HI, Barb – Your summer looks beautiful.
    If is officially winter here. But, our snow is all melted and our lawn is once again green. The weather is currently 7C. So, definitely not bad for winter in Canada! Fingers crossed that this remains…at aleast for a little while. 😀

  2. The flax photo captured my attention–to see it growing in its native environment. It almost seems to exude a different feeling than the NZ flax we plant here in California as a landscape plant. And the Pohutukawa flowers are stunning!
