One of my favorite places to take photos is Yatton Park. The back part of the park over looks these Salt Marshes and at this time of year the colours are just beautiful!

Copyright Lisa Sarsfield 2009We’re home again! I hope to be out and about photographing natures wonderful blossoms again soon. In the mean time I have a plentiful supply ready and waiting!  I photographed this pretty bloom at Yatton Park just before we left for the hospital.

Thanks to everyone who visited while we were away and to those of you who left well wishes!

This is my last post for a while, my eldest is having surgery tomorrow so I will be otherwise occupied!

Take care y’all!

It’s clean up NZ week and for the second year running we went to our localpond to pull out rubbish. I am pleased to say we got less rubbish than last year, although it would be nice if there was no rubbish! The type of rubbish we got was different too, last year it was a lot of builders waste due to the many homes being built in our area at the time. It was blowing from the sites and into the pond. This year it was due to visitor waste and a big part of that was probably due to the fact that there are no bins at the pond. The council are still to install those! So here’s some shots from our lovely  pond and my kids doing there  bit to keep NZ green! The photo’s above show why we think it’s so important.

The pond by my house is looking so full of life at the moment. New blooms, green green’s and of course birds!
