A New Year

Pohutukawa - the New Zealand Christmas Tree
Metrosideros excelsa

Happy New Year to all. Forgive the lack of posts but of course in the lower half of the world our Christmas and Summer holidays collide and I have been visiting friends and family in New Zealand. We returned last night to our own beds - all the happier for the fact we had a wonderful time with friends and family and were blessed with sparkling bright days in the sun and sea.

In the next week I shall write formally again but for the moment I post a picture of the beautiful New Zealand Christmas tree which flowers prolifically in the North Island of New Zealand at this time of year.

Happy New Year to you, Tina! How lovely it sounds with a holiday in New Zealand; I am quite jealous, despite our own, wonderful skiing vacation in Whistler during the Christmas break... I look forward to your postings this year!
