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.

Cropped the best of them for this  post.

Taupo Gardens…4Not a floral start to this week’s post,

but I figured we could all do with

some world peace.

Sri Chinmoy dedicated his life to World Peace.

Google tells me he founded the

Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in 1977.

Apparently there was, or are, runs/races

in Geelong in the name of Sri Chinmoy.

Which means one of two things;

that I am not  interested in world peace, or

that I am not that athletic.

I choose the latter. 🙂

 

Now that my level of athleticism has been established,

let’s move on to some hellebores.

And some rhododendrons…in bushes

the size of which,

I have never previously laid eyes upon

In late September sunshine…

…the blooms looked just as good close up.

Taupo Gardens…3Last week I ceased at the boomerang garden beds.

There is a bit more ‘Floral’ in…

this week’s Friday.

I can assure you that there is…

…a very pretty/floral section of this garden.

This image is nearly at the beginning

of that ‘floral’ section.

Taupo Gardens…1I don’t have a name for these gardens,

so all will be listed as Taupo Gardens.

The Lions Club monorail runs, or its track does,

through these gardens…

…and is literally ‘over the road‘ from Lake Taupo.

This garden bed is one of the first we captured…

…however it is not….

…a true representation… of the rest of this smallish garden.

…of the rest of this not so large garden.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk172_Vanishing

 

Some images from New Zealand

The first two probably fit….

the photographic sense of vanishing more than the last. 

Readers can judge.  🙂

Finally, I think this is

Mount Ruapehu

vanishing into the clouds in

New Zealand’s

Tongariro National Park.
