I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. Jo, is that frost on the first picture? Time zone difference. So it must be like our Febuary here for you? Love how the sun highlights the ferns. Wonderful pictures! New Zealand is a beautiful place, you are blessed.

  4. Lovely photos, great job!
    If I were to document my mornings, you would only see pictures of the Captain’s Quarters. I don’t see any reason to ruin a perfectly good morning, by being awake for it. πŸ™‚

  5. Love the contrast of the frost and the colors (including green!). What is the pink? The other green looks kind of familiar but the pink “flower,” is strange to me.

    1. Thanks – I liked that contrast myself. I think the plant is called A. arboreum β€˜Atropurpureum’ or β€˜Zwartkop’. It is very pretty and goes a dark purple.

  6. The frost is kinda refreshing for me. Hot southern US summer weather going on here.
    What is the pink bloom? It’s very pretty and you did a great job capturing it.

    1. Thank you for that comment. I had heard you are getting it hot over there. I am not 100% sure but I think it is called a A. arboreum ‘Atropurpureum’ or ‘Zwartkop’. It is very beautiful. I love succulents.

  7. What great photos! Frost…It has been as high as 105 in South Carolina this August. It’s strange to think: It’s the same day, same month, and you have frost.

    Great Blog you have here. I have really enjoyed looking around. Good Luck with your book! I’m sure it will be great!

    1. Thank you Lisa. So glad you stopped by and enjoyed looking around. That is fairly warm – we are about to get a real winter storm. They are advising everyone to buckle down against the cold, and the gales force winds. Not looking forward to it. πŸ™‚

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
