Chilly Afternoon

Hardy Street

One chilly afternoon.  Those tree still have little leaves left but getting colder and colder.  It's winter in CBD.

Cold Spell

It's been cold all over New Zealand this week; Nelson has had two consecutive overnight temperatures below 0C, which is cold for Nelson. But every year, by June, I don't feel the cold any more and much time is spent on perpetual weeding.

This year I learned about multi-level potting of different bulbs, the idea being the smaller ones on top flower early and medium and larger ones will follow. The top layers have come out, but now I don't know what's going to happen to the violets, (the purple ones may die after this morning's frost), or the subsequent layers on top. I only followed the instructions from a bulb company!

Bye Bye Istanbul

One in a while, we decided to go somewhere for nice dinner.. 

We headed to favourite place after much sort where to go.

... and ... 

What we found is that it has been closed and something is going on inside..

Little sighn  on window (not in pic) says it will be reborn as "Cafe MAX" in sometime soon.

I miss their platters most and may of decisions food.    I'm not sure what kind of place it will be next.

... maybe keep eye on it ...

It's a good crispy Sunday morning (Well it's about 10:30am) !  There is a moon over the mountain range today.
