Orange evening at Picton.

Sky Watch Friday.
A beautiful Orange Evening at Picton. This is completely untouched, with its power lines and orange coloured sea and sky..
One of the ferries are in port. This was taken before the harbour renovations started. The long narrow boat in the front is a houseboat that is available to rent out during the summer. Now that would be fun!

Floating Gypsy village Thailand

Sky Watch for this week is from when we were in Thailand. We visited a floating gypsy village at Phang Nga, by long tail boats such as you can see at the side of photo, stayed for a meal and to meet some of the people who dwell over the water all their lives. A nice clear blue sky.
Do check out some of the other sky photos from around the world.

Spring blossoms

My World Meme.
Spring blossoms.
Three different fruiting trees, two different apple, a plum and greengage blossoms.
Our little Burmese cat likes to sniff the plum flowers.
Also a branch of yellow Kowhai flowers, this is a native tree that flowers to herald spring in New Zealand.

Richmond Ranges and bare grape vines

Grape vines wintering over, soon to shoot new leaves and fruit, with our misty blue mountains the Richmond Ranges, in the distance.

Sorry about the sun flash I just shot it out the taxi window!
