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.

      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.
