After that we drove down to Laurie Hall Park in Whangarei itself where the Dawn Service was held to see the crosses and wreaths.
In the photo below there is a Monarch Butterfly on the front cross. Unfortunately, it has its wings closed in the photo.
There were too many people standing in front of the wreaths to get a photo of the whole table
I have some large gaps in my garden now as I had several large bushes and lots of day lilies removed yesterday. It looks better already and we sprayed the weeds that are left today and, when they die, I will replant. Several other areas are planned for this treatment - watch this space.
