Taking photos gives me a lot of satisfaction especially when the photos are special like the following ones:IMG_2964

Another toadstool!


Last three to four weeks we had unusual weather. It was still just over 20 degrees C which is quite hot for this time of year. We also had a lot of rain too.   The warm weather brought two cyclones. Cyclone Debbie was the first one and less than a week it was followed by cyclone Cook. Debbie did not reach us in the lower North Island but cyclone Cook brought heavy rain and strong winds.  People were asked to put their long weekend arrangements on hold because some roads were expected to wash away, slips could also occur.

As soon as the weather cleared again I found more toadstools popping out. I found these on the lawn on the roadside.

Using flash takes the warmth away and

makes it hard.
