Wednesday around the World

For some reason, this art deco building makes me smile every time we
go by it on the main street in Pahiatua.

Show us your world by linking up below!


spring flowers

I finally had some great weather for photos of the garden.


gulls on an island

We went to New Plymouth today and stopped at some of the lookouts.
The water was such a lovely color in the sun, but the photos didn't even come close!
So, I will show you one of the Sugar Loaf Islands  and the gulls on hanging out on it.


underwater drops

We have had a lot of rain this winter (12 months' worth in 8 months, says the weatherman) and I haven't had a lot of chances to walk down our road this spring. So, when the sun came out and I could stretch my legs  this week, I noticed that there was a running stream on one side of the road and a still pond along the other side.  

Looking closer, I was very surprised to see that the clover under the water on the pond side had drops of water  oxygen (Thanks, Yamini!) on the leaves[though, I still like the idea of it being a water drop]. This is definitely something that I've never seen before!

I was reluctant to post these photos because, at first glance, they look badly taken.
But, I wanted to share this bit of bizarre nature with those who would appreciate it :)
