new zealand

i've had my guest photographer out working for me again... my son just returned from a trip to wellington new zealand where he saw some interesting architecture, beautiful water views and even visited the botanical gardens.

this is actually a house in the style of a lighthouse
love it!

how about a boat for a balcony?

some of my favourite plants hydrangeas and succulents
