    Doesn't she look nimble? That's what I miss about being young. The leaps and bounds yet to be.

    I hope that the 'CLEAR' spray-painted 'sign' seen by the entrance will be kept as a memory.

    Do you think the decor has enough squares in it?

    They’re putting 70,000 rectangular objects in there! <happy sigh>

    I’ve really enjoyed this thread, thanks everyone. Here’s a dragonfly from Singapore (I think it was in the botanic gardens), July 2009.

    p.s. I like the carpet; at least, how it looks in that first photo of the set. Rather aesthetically pleasing.

    It really was! I have more insects in pink, from the same trip - gerberas and flutterbys at Changi Airport.

  • Kyle Matthews,

    It is a limited subset of the ‘orginal’ Pixietown, basically bits that were in good working condition when it came to the Early Settlers. There is a gold coin donation for restoration (or at least has been in past years, we haven’t been this season yet).

    Presumably not this year, with the settlers museum closed for refurbishment?

    Yes, driving by on Saturday on the way to the airport there was a "The Pixies are on holiday" notice

    A local butterfly. Not sure what this shrub is, but the red and yellow admirals were going nuts for it back in April.

    Yes, that carpet is great. That shade of pink is s0 2011. It's almost a pity that it will soon all be covered with shelves and furniture, but at least we have a photo to remember it. And it fits perfectly with the theme of this post!

    I know! I've only been to Dunedin once, but I made sure I visited that while I was there. Wonderful :)

    This pic was from the Butterfly and Orchid Garden at Thames, one of my very favourite places.
