Taupo Gardens…7I think this is another rhododendron,

however, it appears to have a different leaf.

It was difficult getting close to these blooms.

 

 

Was so busy looking at the artwork, that…

nearly did not notice the Camellias.

Although I do not have a photo to prove the fact,

I  did see the Northern Lights in August 1976.

Not a very colourful display but my Canadians friends

assured me it was the northern lights.

In May the same  year I visited Stonehenge also.

In 2016 I was able to add…

…the Colosseum to that list.

I still marvel that these pavers were laid nearly 2000 years ago.

Just imagine also the feet which have walk across here.

 

 

In 2014 we were…

 

…fortunate enough to visit…

…the Victoria Falls.

In April 2012 we spent a few hours…

out on the…

Great Barrier Reef.

I remember being little disappointed that we did not see

the colours often seen in movies/documentaries.

We were also told that a recent cyclone

had wrecked this section of the reef.

The comment left me wondering why we did not go

to  another, more attractive part.

After revisiting these photos I think my thoughts were a bit harsh.

All of these places of sites can be found on

an ‘Ancient’, ‘Natural’ or ‘New’ Wonders of the World search.

Taupo Gardens…6I may have posted a cropped version

of this photo previously.

Just wish we could grow rhododendrons

likes this in our garden.

I am fairly certain the nest two images…

…are both camellias.

Attractive as this is I do not know its name.

Commencing with farm fences…

…old farm fences…

…to be precise.

London fences…

…or at least the top of them.

And this fence was no match for our

friendly inquisitive giraffe each morning.
