The evening sky taken from my window last Sunday with the moon and Venus in close proximity.  The rose is not from my garden but from a garden in Havelock North where the frosts are much less and the late roses were still flowering well.

From My Garden

This year my Hamamelis or Witch Hazel is flowering beautifully and this calyx from a persimmon has such wonderful colour and patterns.  There always seems to be something different to find when the weather is nice enough to be outside.

David's Photographs

This is a very much photographed lighthouse in Cornwall, UK and I thought David's portrait of the seagull was particularly good.  I hope David does not mind me using his lovely photographs on my blog but I have not taken any interesting pictures for some time.

The wind has now removed all the leaves from my persimmon tree and the birds have removed all the fruit.  Last week the evening sun showed up this rainbow against the dark clouds.  The dark tree on the far left hand side had a large branch blown over during the following night and I am still working on cleaning up the mess.
