I think this image maybe from Whakatane

which was our base when we visited

 Ohope Beach

and Opotiki region.

If I had to guess…

…I would say these were Poppies.

Taupo Gardens…9I know I have posted rhododendrons previously

however they are not all from

the same bush/tree/plant.

These shots were taken as we completed

our walk around this downtown garden.



Some of the bushes were hanging

over the footpath like this one.

When I hear or think ‘collar’

I think of a shirt collar or dog collar.

Taji and Candi wear two collars.

One is a functional leather collar…

while the other is a pretty collar which

carries their name and phone number

should they ever wander.
