We had an enjoyable walk today following the route Doug and I planned last week.
We went a bit further along Vale Road and I noticed this flowering plant - I think it is a rose but it seemed very early. We have had the odd flower but this was covered in flowers. Unfortunately, it has not come out very well.
This native I noticed last time but did not get a photo. I am not sure what it is but the leaf is in the following photo.
Plenty of ducks alongside the river
and the mother duck had brought her eight ducklings out a bit further.
Afterwards Doug had to get a fitting for the tank so I walked into town and noticed this lovely mural of a Hongi
HONGI IS THE TRADITIONAL MĀORI GREETING IN NEW ZEALAND. IT IS DONE BY PRESSING ONE’S NOSE AND FOREHEAD (AT THE SAME TIME) TO ANOTHER PERSON AT AN ENCOUNTER.
