 I think Cherry trees are almost perfect! The provide a fantastic show in both Spring and Autumn and their branches stretch out to form a stunning canopy of colour. I took this photo the other day before picking the kids up from school and the cherry blossom photo is obviously from my archives. I didn’t set out with the intention of replicating the photo in it’s opposite  but when I got there I realised I could and tried to remember where it was I had stood. My memory served me pretty well! I think the courtyard (in Greerton) looks equally good in both seasons although if you want to see some more  of  spring please visit my blogging friend John who recently posted a lovely spring shot from his backyard.

Busy, busy days! Fun too though and I am sure you will agree that that is the right sort of busy! Monday I spent camera-less at a school beach trip ( sometimes I miss my small camera!) It was a great day but 5 hours spent with 60 or so kids on the beach in 26 deg heat is totally exhausting! How do kids do it? lol

Tuesday was spent at Waimarino, this time with my camera in hand for most of it as you can see! It’s a fabulous place for a school trip! I kyaked for the first time in quite a few years and atleast this time the kids came home as tired as I was!

The Greerton Village Primary School Kapahaka Group performing at the the welcome ceremony for the “Catwalk Conquest Tour” an organisation raising funds and awarness for people with spinal injuries. I will be posting more on that tomorrow including some cool pics of the wheelchair modified trike.

The cultural perfomance recieved a good response from the crowd as well as the organisers. It’s quite a moving experience and ofcourse, unique to New Zealand.

Its election time and this politician wasn’t about to miss great photo opportunity! He’s a National Party MP not a Green but I won’t hold it againts him:)
