During my working life I have come into contact
with many (sheep dog) pups…all of which
Candi did not take long to settle into
Number 2 Son’s arms.
He may have had a head start as
she was a Christmas or birthday gift
from him and daughter-in-law to me.
I have never seen an ugly Labrador
at this stage of its life.
Taji still loves to be handled and
given some rough play.
I think my all time favourite ‘cutes’ are
the several hundred photos I have
of ‘Nosy’ and ‘Rosy’ and Mum Limpy
on our last night in Africa 2013.
At 6-8 weeks old what more would a cub do
but munch on elephant dung
while watching tourists.
Today we were heading north from Whakatane
We came upon this hillside covered in
what we call Pampas Grass.
The bushy flowers do look attractive,
particularly with the sun behind them.
To the best of my memory pampas
is a noxious weed in Australia.
Somewhere near Paerora is the best
I can do for this image.
We were on our way to Matta Matta
and the Hobbiton Movie Set.
