Not a good photo to begin with…

…however, Hobbits fans may recognise

the  chessboard and be able

to add two and two.

Unfortunately I am not a fan.

Even bought an eBay Hobbits movie

after returning to Australia

and just could not get into it at all.

I had some serious thoughts about what to include

and what not to include in my FOTD post.

We were told that all was real except for the pumpkins.

It wasn’t expressly stated…

whether these pumpkins were real 

or if it was movie pumpkins

which were not real.

There were two reason why I opted

to include the above photos today.

First it gives you an idea of how

the set looks today.  And second,

I believe those are cauliflowers,

or perhaps cabbages,

behind the wheel barrow.

Finally, a look at what  is to come.

Not many flowers but enough

to brighten the Hobbits’ front gardens.

And maybe to entice you to visit

Today we were heading north from Whakatane

and the Ohope Beach / Opotiki region.

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.
