Christmas NZ Style a Cool Public Artwork Underway

It's 2015! Where has the last year gone?
I started this post before the New Year but have had major computer hassles, so the posts are a bit slow coming.

This post is going to be mostly pictures - some from Christmas day - what New Zealanders get up to for a Summer Christmas.
The beach near us had lots of families out enjoying the lovely day.
The Pohutukawa trees (our New Zealand Christmas trees) were glorious.

Christmas Day - Pataua South, Northland

On Boxing Day we visited my brother in Auckland. They had been keen to show us this mural being painted on the side of Hillsborough Playcentre. Look at the detail - even faces in the little windows.

It's not finished yet - but isn't it great!
Happy New Year!


  1. What a great mural!
    Happy New Year to you and your family.

    1. Thanks Cynthia - and Happy New Year to you too. I hope 2015 will be good for you and your family.

  2. I love that mural. I would love to see more murals than advertisements around. I have only spent 4 Christmases without the cold weather but your pictures make me long for another one year soon. Hope your computer issues are cleared up soon, I love my computer but when it acts up it makes for an awful day. How in the world did I ever get so attached to a little machine? :-)

    Hope you had a lovely New Years.

    1. Thanks Lois, we did have a lovely New Year's - a barbecue with a few friends around. Happy New Year to you too! (My computer seems to be behaving again thank goodness. I know what you mean - it made me very irritable having to go without it)


Hey, thanks for visiting my blog - it is just great when you leave me a comment.
