Winter is ending

Slowly we are moving towards spring. Only 2 weeks to go. Every season has its own charm and the highlight of this winter was a day trip to the stunning snow capped mountains which is only a 40 minute drive.. Isn't New Zealand beautiful. I feel so blessed to live here.

  1. I believe beauty is everywhere. Even the desert has a beauty of its own. What I envy is a peaceful region with no conflicts and wars. I think Australia and New Zeeland are like that. When one looks on the map , the two seem at the end of the world, isolated by that awful Indian Ocean. Nevertheless, compared to other places on the globe, they are a blessed Paradise.

  2. Prachtig landschap Marja, je hebt gelijk. Wij waren er jaren geleden, een van de bijzondere dingen die ik me herinner was dat we aan zee liepen en we achter ons de besneeuwde toppen van de bergen konden zien, volgens mij uniek. Ik zie, net als Duta hierboven, Nieuw Zeeland en ook Australie als een soort paradijs, zo ver weg dat de oorlogen er aan voorbij gaan. Hoop dat het zo mag blijven.
    Groetjes, Janneke

  3. Looking forward to cooler weather taking hold here in South Carolina. But that won't happen until the last of September. As always, the pictures are awesome!

  8. New Zealand has everything of beauty and is a wonder to behold. As your winter is winding down our summer is coming to a slow close. Opposites in weather as the world turns.

  9. Those mountains are gorgeous! We are heading towards autumn over here. I treated myself to a new raincoat last week, which came in handy a couple of times already!
