This opening paragraph is becoming somewhat repetitious. Another month where rain and wind conspired against me for taking photos of this walk. However, just in the nick of time the sun shone yesterday for the first time in 10 days, there was no rain AND no wind! So I headed to the memorial garden to see what I could find. Mostly berries again, but some interesting foliage and textures. With all the red and green it had quite a seasonal feeling.
George V Memorial Walk – November 29 2019
- Row 1: Yucca with old dead leaves removed, Hebe (Veronica), Pretty (unknown) foliage, Fuchsia microphylla, Cornus stems
- Row 2: Robin in a pine tree¹, Ilex (Holly), Correa, Phormium (NZ Flax), Senecio greyi
- Row 3: Cordyline australis / cabbage palm with white berries, Cotoneaster horizontalis, a crochet square², Cornus leaves, Eucalyptus tree

It’s astonishing the quirky things I keep on finding in along this walk.
¹ “Robins appear when lost loved ones are near” is written on a heart shaped sign hanging in a small pine tree which is a memorial for a dearly missed Great Grandpa.
² “if this brings a smile to your face and brightens up your day, please feel free to take it home” Facebook Random Acts of Crochet Kindness. (It did make me smile but I didn’t take it home, I thought I’d rather leave it to make someone else smile)
All these photos were taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M10 using a 45mm f/1.8 prime lens.
And for those of you last month who were curious about the “Dummy” tree, here it is in full, though without its leaves:
