Red {Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge}

i'm loving that i can participate in this challenge, even though it's SPRING here!

having said that, the last couple of days have felt positively SUMMERY

bring it on!

a couple of photos today:

this one is the pohutukawa = a tree that is native to new zealand

i love it that it ONLY grows here - not ANYWHERE else in the world!
it's hardy too - it'll even grow on the side of a cliff!

then some more beautiful spring tulips from our botantical gardens

i've applied a filter i downloaded from the coffee shoppe blog
can't remember which ones, but i played around a bit and loved the result!

I love the pohutukawa. They look very similar to the lehua flowers in Hawaii. :)
Thanks for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I hope you'll be back again on Friday when we move on to our new theme, purple! Have a great day.
