Summer in New Zealand is hot, hot and sticky and very definitely at the top of the North Island, it’s tropical!
Summer colours in New Zealand for me are distinct. The bright blue of the sky, the vivid turquoise of the ocean, the zingy green of the grass, and the yellows and oranges of the flax blossoms. I love this odd little flowers. I love it even more when we get to see the Tuis feeding on them.
Around our house we have a lot of native flax bush. I snapped this on a dog walk near to our house one evening this week.. can’t help but think they look like odd bunches of bananas!
Regardless whether they do or not, I love the colours in this photo which just about capture a kiwi summer in my opinion!
