Travel theme: Soft
Garden tours in November, spring in New Zealand are a joy. This from Auckland in the North Island, subtropical climate, maritime too. The soft cloud of fennel planted behind the roses enchanted me yesterday. As a gardener, I’d never have thought of that combination! It’s like painting a picture – you have sharp lines – found lines – and lost lines – soft.
One garden mini-lake had several frogs croaking in a chorus among the soft water weed. The cropped photo didn’t appear, but check out the enlarged picture and see the small green frog expanding his cream throat like a drum head. It made an impressive sound for one so wee.
