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 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.
Sadly, we didn’t see swallows today.
