Yet another dreary day in the supposed "sunny Hawkes Bay"!!! When will it end - this is supposed to be Spring!!! Busy hard day on the ward today so couldn't be bothered driving to my usual dog walking place .... this is a relatively local dog walking park. One of the very, very few areas where dogs allowed off the leash around here. It's local body elections so hoping for a new council and some more dog friendly areas.
You can see the fresh spring green:
Not sure if this works, and not sure what tree the new growth is: [IMAGE'S LINK: https://flic.kr/p/LKxHyx]IMG_5072-Edit by Rose McGillicuddy, on Flickr
Love the new green on the willows - this shot actually flatters the area I reckon [IMAGE'S LINK: https://flic.kr/p/LKxHzz]IMG_5073-Edit by Rose McGillicuddy, on Flickr
Kowhai and bokeh. One of our native trees which the birds love, especially the tui. [IMAGE'S LINK: https://flic.kr/p/LKxHB8]IMG_5074-Edit by Rose McGillicuddy, on Flickr
I always think these blossom trees look like ballerinas, but don't think I've captured that. Had my dog and didn't want to venture near the busy road. [IMAGE'S LINK: https://flic.kr/p/LKxHBP]IMG_5078-Edit by Rose McGillicuddy, on Flickr
