New Year, new start
Hope your year is off to a great start dear friends.
I love the start of a new year and the thrill of having a blank page and writing down thoughts and dreams in a journal or like painting a picture on a fresh blank canvas.
We can look to the next twelve months with excitement and dream of what we want to do and achieve.
After taking down Christmas and storing it away until next year, it always feels good to have the house clean and tidy.
We were out driving when we had to stop and take some pictures of these sunflowers, that I would like to share with you. Such bright and cheery flowers and make me smile
Out on a walk the Tui was drinking nectar from the flax flowers
Lastly the Pohutakawa tree blooming a few weeks back, with bright crimson flowers.
These trees are often found around the coast and the flowers appear in late December. This tree is often referred to as the New Zealand Christmas tree.
' Let new adventures begin',
the message read on the wooden seat, overlooking Hekerua Bay on our walk the other day. Waiheke Island has some beautiful walks with spectacular views and we are so lucky to be able to ramble around and take in all the beauty of nature.
Wishing you a wonderful week
