about this blog

I started this blog in 2008. It started mainly as a way of tracking the evolution of my dry garden, and that led to an interest in photography and in the creatures that live in the garden. It's still about the garden and wildlife, but now my passion is thinking about how we humans can learn to co-exist with wild animals and plants, especially in urban areas.

the first spring

A dear friend of mine, a refugee, spent her entire life in South East Asia where the weather does not divide into four seasons as it does in other regions. Now she is living in New Zealand. She is full of joy and wonder as she experiences her first Spring. Here are some photos she has taken.


  1. Still hard to understand how you can have Spring when we are just entering Autumn. Lovely pictures though.

  2. Very good shot of those pretty blooms! I am sure she enjoys her first Spring... I would be too!

  3. Nice pictures. I love that last one.

  4. The photos are great. I love the last one a lot - petals on the path. I have never seen a garden being photograph like that before - very nice!
