A day with heat and colour

By 2pm yesterday it was 26C here. That is a hot day for us. Thanks in part to the heat wave being sent over the Tasman Sea from Australia.

I went out for 20minutes and snapped some “heat and colour” photos.

    Yes, it does look like a hot day. I love the leaves in photos 3 and 4. I have never seen leaves any that color.

      I loved the way the sunshine was coming through the leaves Judy. The leaves and orange flowers belong together and are Canna Lillies – a subtropical plant. They will grow more prolifically in the northern parts of New Zealand where it is warmer.

    Great photos Lynley. We went out for a walk along the south coast yesterday and it blew a gale, after such a lovely morning. Great day again today. Enjoy. Happy New Year.

    Thank you for that burst of sunshine! Needless to say it’s grey and drizzly here in Scotland. Looking forward to spring!

      It was certainly a hot day until a cool southerly gale blew through later in the day!! The colours did seem very vibrant when I went out in the morning. We hope for more summer here but we have had our share of grey and drizzly too so far:-)

      I loved the “hot” colours too. They certainly fitted that day. Porirua, where I live does not generally experience the high temperatures that Christchurch does in summertime.
