I love that there is so much green to see most of the year in NZ.

We saw lots of wild turkeys on our recent trip.

These are the tops of  ponga trees growing along the Forgotten
World Highway.


water, water, everywhere!

There's something soothing about water, at least, to me, and it always
has a calming effect, no matter what mood I am in.

Hubby took this photo in Raglan.


Mokau Museum

Mokau is one of those towns along State Highway 3 that you stop for coffee
and a comfort stop on your way somewhere else. The museum is across the street
from the public toilets and I have seen it many, many times but it never looked open
and I never thought to check to see. 

I watched a series called Heritage Rescue on Choice TV about a team who remodeled 
and updated small, local museums across New Zealand, like this one, and was definitely 
interested to see the updates.
So, of course, I had to check it out the next time we passed through, which was for 
our caves and rail-car trip.

To be honest, it still didn't look open, but Hubby and I checked it out anyway, and it was open!

These are a few highlights that I found interesting. There were lots of other things, too.

This fridge on the porch  caught my eye--great idea for re-purposing!


Wednesday around the World

These are a few of the many flying visitors to  my garden this spring.
