Sunday post: Natural Resources


The following shows why it is important to leave some natural resources where they are.

I have taken many photos of the cherry tree blossoms.

The blossoms are a natural resource for bees

to make their honey. We use honey in many  different ways..

Bees use it to breed new bees.

Queen lays eggs, eggs become bees and

bees pollinate flowers.

Flowers become fruit.

We eat fruit to stay healthy.

Birds also eat fruit and visit flowers for

Travel Theme: LIQUID




LAKE Karapiro

Lake Karapiro is an artificial reservoir lake on the Waikato River, 30 kilometres (19 mi) south-east of the city of Hamilton in the North Island of New Zealand. The lake was formed in the 1940’s by damming the Waikato River to store water for the 96-megawatt Karapiro hydroelectric power station.

The lake, regarded as one of New Zealand’s best rowing venues, hosted the World Rowing Championships in 1978 and the 1950 British Empire Games. The 2010 World Rowing Championships were held here.


Wellington  –  BAY

Lyall Bay is a bay and a suburb on the south side of the Rongotai isthmus in WellingtonNew Zealand.

The bay is a popular surf beach, featuring a breakwater at the eastern end. It has also been the site of surf lifesavingchampionships, and is home to two surf lifesaving clubs. Lyall Bay is a very popular and safe swimming beach.[citation needed] The beach is only two thirds of its original size; the construction of Wellington International Airporttook away the eastern third of the beach.

WELL MADE craft market

Saturday November 24, 2012 I attended a new craft market in Upper Hutt.

It was worth it because I sold 3 throws and 1 cot quilt and also two bags.

Here is my table

I sold the following quilts

Dr Zues quilt

Rugby Quilt

Kiwiana Quilt

The last one I have only two squares

I have forgotten to take a photo because I finished it of the night  before  the market

That is it.

I am relaxing now for a day or two before starting the next project.

I’ll tell about the next project as soon as I have made some squares to show.
