Kereru (wood pigeon), piwakawaka (fantails) and tui every day. The gecko i blogged about HERE, is still in residence on our deck. We are incredibly blessed to have all this wild space as a backdrop to our daily lives. I love it when friends and family visiting New Zealand, or living in the city come to stay. We get to see all this through their eyes. We get reminded just how blessed we are. And, it is always special to open your home and heart to ones you love.
Jed and i went for a special Winter Solstice wander the other day. We found puriri trees that are hundreds of years old, played pooh sticks, sat in the sun, saw fish in the stream, enjoyed some mud, picked some grassy treats for Chester the rabbit. Connected, to each other and the world around us. Good times.
kauri snail shell i have seen. Kauri snails are a giant snail, native to NZ and are an endangered species. It always makes me feel hopeful when i see one.
kauri tree trunk that Jed likes to set up a goblin market in.
Good good times.
