Happy Holidays From Down Under

Happy Holidays Everyone –

Hope that 2011 brings you all you wish and more.

A big thank you for your wonderful comments and support over the last month.

The tree is a Pohutukawa, also known as the New Zealand Christmas tree and ours always is in full bloom during the Christmas break.

Vague pronounciation guide…  po (as in poetry) hu (as in the noise owls make) tu (as in too) ka (as in car) wa (rhymes with car).

Don’t know how much I’ll get to post, over the next few weeks…

We’re off to the beach!!!!
