These images are from walking the pooches yesterday. I am lucky enough to live in the Wairarapa; in Te Reo (Aotearoa’s indigenous language) this means Glistening Waters.
The Wairarapa is a rural region with lots of diary farming, wine making and creative community projects happening. It is an incredibly beautiful and diverse region. Here I am at Mt Holdsworth- a magical fairy land full of amazing walks. Out there walking pooches.
Red Mango and Murphy went walking and Niwa pooch went to his favourite dog-sitter.
We walked in the magical Mt Holdsworth forest.
This beautiful Goldfinch landed outside my door and wasn’t moving. I bundled him up and put him in a box….he is a lot more alert now…but still not quite ready to fly away.
