photos from Taranaki

This beautiful magnolia is blooming in Hawera. It's another lovely bit if 
spring even though it's still winter!

The rest of these photos are from the archives.


As some of you know, Hubby likes to feed the eels in the Huatoki River.

He entertains the diners above the mural of eels.

Hello, I would like to feed the eel. They are neat looking! Love the murals, crab, ducks and pretty swans. Your flowers are gorgeous. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

You really should have been a photographer (as a job!) I immensely enjoy just looking at your capture -the blooming tree - that is what your spring will be all about:) The rocks on the coast, and the eels (they're so big!) are stunning. In Holland (country of origin) they eat smoked eel as a delicacy.
Your experiences are a great asset to the links in All Seasons - thank you and hope spring will will really break through soon!

Fantastic shots, Betty. Eels are fascinating creatures, I have just started reading a book by Tom Fort called: "The Book of Eels". See:
