Cherry on top: The Daily Post, Photo Challenge


Michelle says

The cherry on top. The icing on the cake. Or, as the straightforward folks at Oxford Dictionaries explain it, “a desirable feature perceived as the finishing touch to something that is already very good.”

Not only a lovely rose but also

SILVER FERNS

Visitors to Wellington’s Civic Square are captivated by this sculpture, ‘Ferns’, by Neil Dawson. A sphere of the silver leaves that have come to symbolise New Zealand, it is suspended between the surrounding buildings 14 metres above the ground, and on a clear day seems to float above the crowd.

NIKAU PALMS

Nikau is one of fifteen stylised nikau palm trees designed by architect Ian Athfield made from copper, zinc, and steel.

The nikau is the only species of palm endemic to New Zealand. Traditionally, the bases of the inner leaves and young flowers were eaten; food was wrapped in the leaves for cooking; and the old fibrous leaves used for baskets, floor mats, and waterproof thatch for buildings.

Look who we saw on our walk!


This afternoon Trompie and I went for our afternoon walk. We went up some stairs and over the hill to the other side of the hill from where we live.

We haven’t done this roundfor  some time. I am so glad we did it.

Never a dull moment while walking.

Not only dogs, cats, birds,people but also

horses

The lady wanted the horse to look at me but

cars were coming and she had to move on!
