It was a week-end of good time spent outdoors. Little walk with many pretty butterflies along the way. A lunch enjoyed at the top of the hill with beautiful view of Porirua harbour on one side and Wellington on the other. The nice feeling of being part of such a nice place... Fruit and vegetable picking at the orchard. Big red onions, luscious tomatoes, cute strawberries and peppers, a lot of peppers, mild and hot. And the old but excellent movie, Baraka, so relevant -even if watched indoor...

Ce fut un week-end rempli de bons moments passés en plein air. Petite marche avec d'adorables papillons tout le long. Un déjeuner avalé au sommet d'une colline avec une vue magnifique du port de Porirua d'un côté et Wellington de l'autre. La sensation agréable de faire partie d'un si bel endroit... Récolte de fruits et légumes dans un verger. Gros oignons rouges, tomates pulpeuses, fraises mignones et des poivrons, beaucoup de poivrons, doux et forts. Et le vieux mais excellent film, Baraka, si pertinent -même si regardé à l'intérieur celui-la...


La nature est superbe par chez toi… je comprends que l’on ne se lasse pas de l’admirer! Il faut décidément que je mette ce pays dans mes projets de voyage! Dominique (De vous à moi…)

Breathtaking photographs as always! and I feel like walking through those grasses and racing with the breeze:-) Beautiful Beautiful fresh produce. Soma

*Maybe where you live the colors are simply brighter. I think that’s possible (especially since we live in a town of mostly brown). The orchard you visited – it has apples, berries, tomatoes, eggplant, and I’m guessing more, all to pick on your own? Brilliant! The most I’ve ever seen was a mix of peas and strawberries in the Summer, or pumpkins and apples in Autumn. There is goodness all around you, in ever way possible! Cheers, *Heather** heather

Gorgeous tomatoes. Barbara

<p>Heather, yes we are spoilt! The eggplants and apples were not pick your own yet though; but soon ! Soma, thank you so much ! Barbara, those tomatoes just make you want to bite in directly ! Laura [Hungry and Frozen] ;) Sylvie, and the best is that it’s so accessible !</p> Vanille

Thank you Sylvie. We are fine. Just very sad for all the people who have lost a dear one… Vanille

Wonderfully evocative pictures, Vanille. What an eye you have! And look at those fuchsias - the size of a small tree, incredible!!! Hope all’s well with you and your family and that you have not suffered from the earthquakes… sylvie in Rappahannock
