Jellie Park from a Car Park

Kei te makariri. In other words it is cold, even though the sun shines today. We visited Jellie Park this afternoon just to rest our eyes on the view. Apart from whizzing out to snap a few photos, we stayed ensconced in our warm car.

These are the sights we saw.

This was the view in front of us.

This was the view to the left.

This is a close up of the lavender. Not very clear, unfortunately, but you can still get an idea of the rich purpleness. There was a bumblebee present too but it bumbled away from my menacing camera lens.

This was the view to the right of us.

And this is a closer photo of the mass of pink flowers that you can see above

Sadly, we didn’t see swallows today.
