    Maybe they could sell off all their tanks and buy more musical instruments.

    That's almost like swords-to-ploughshares. Except a brass band can be a terrifying weapon if used at close range. :-)

  • Capture: Wellington? Well, I Would.,

    I love Welly. The last *3* times I’ve tried to go there, stuff has happened to stop me going. But I’m determined to break the jinx soon. :-)

    Nah, slept great, was up briefly for a catfood emergency. :-)

    Jos, I can only do these 3Ds on the iPad. For me I have to get pretty close.

    Lovely shots, Jack. I particularly dig the cranes with Mt Vic and the Duck & Frog [perfect pub name]. And of course you had to take a night photo of the railway station. :-)

    Oh yay, I can do these ones! Although the trees seem to bulge in the middle :-)

    both lacebark & ribbonwood (tree) were used as plaiting/woven material…

    I've seen some amazing woven lacebark. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to work with, being so delicate and fragile.

    ribbonwoods

    Not sure where these ones grow. What I think of as ribbonwoods are much smaller...skinny things with branches that grow almost straight up against the trunk.

    the kotukutuku -tree fuchsia – is the only tree native that is deciduous

    Some dramatic stands of these on the Otira side of Arthurs Pass. Lovely red trunks in the Winter.

    Aren’t ribbonwoods deciduous too? I guess they’re more shrubs than trees.

    PS will I be seeing you soon?

    Kowhai trees sprinkled through the gorgeous bush by the Okura River

    I think kowhais are prettiest in bush. Grown as specimen trees they often look straggly and lost. They need their green friends. :-)
