Puzzled, pleasured, and pacified by a city stroll
Plants in a puzzling perspective? Just shadows on the pavement.
Red doors to heaven? Just a Massey University thing.
Old ngaio tree near the Carillon? Yes, and can you see six kaka nibbling buds and blundering over branches?
Toy on a tummy? Just a Buddy-Rabbit tired after his big Saturday walk.
But I am refreshed by a tiny walk across Wellington. Such pleasure, such puzzles. Light and shade. Mini-eccentricities. New native bird life. Student with a rabbit on a leash.
I love my little city.

Lovely photos, Rachel. I’m afraid the recent winds have been keeping me indoors – at home or elsewhere.
If you’re not in Wellington, you missed an intermittently beautiful day.
I am in Wellington, but I only ventured outside a few times to see how the sunflowers were doing in the wind.
Hope they survived! My tomato plants have split.
The ones that had flowered lost their petals! But at least they kept their heads. An example to us all.
Parable of the day.
This made me smile.
So much you saw and how much I enjoyed what you shared, especially the weary bunny on a leash. I should wander around my little town with fresh eyes.
It was one of those days!
sometimes you just need to amble/wander – and when you do, you see things…so many people are in such a hurry. Something, I rarely have to do is “hurry”
