Botanical garden visited!

On Thursday  we( my student and I) had to take the train in to Wellington.

We made arrangements earlier in the week to visit the Botanical garden in Wellington!

Arriving at the station –

No train!

The lady in the ticket office told us a bus would take us.

The bus picked us up and we had to stop at every station to pick people up.

Were there people!?

Many, many wanted to go to Wellington in the 10 o’clock train(bus).

School holidays!

It took us a bit longer than using the train.

Arriving in Wellington we went to the cable car.

It took us to the top of the hill.


We walked down the hill and saw the following!


Very windy and cloudy also cold at first.

We enjoyed the day.


Spring Festival : Upper Hutt , New Zealand

Spring Festival in our Main Street.

It was heavy clouded early morning.

No rain fell and it was warm and humid.

Some flower arrangements in the church.

Very special.

Old cars!

Spring is in the air! Thursday special

Thursday’s Special:  Spring is in the air!


I feel tired and down.

I came across Paula’s Thursday Special.

Spring is in the air and

the beauty of  first blossoms.

Hellebores are commonly known as “Winter Roses”. They are real jewels in the winter garden. Many gardeners treasure their Hellebores and in recent years extensive breeding has produced some fabulous varieties.

Ek het in 2007 n Memory Healing kursus gedoen

Ons moes so veel as moontlik kunsvlyt tegnieke wat ons geleer het in n uitbeelding van gevoel doen

Ek het die liedjie “Blomme” deur Pieter Smit gebruik.

Die liedjie is opgedra aan my seun wat op daardie stadium New Zealand toe verhuis het.

Hier is die werk wat ek gedoen het
