It's Sprung

This is the big magnolia tree by the Information Centre parking lot, on Halifax Street. The flowers are finished, but it's covered in the most cheerful yellow green leaves now.

I love Repairs

I know I've posted the former TOPZ premise, a tiny shop about 50 meters from the current location. They make fabulous clogs and sandals, as well as sell boots made in Dunedin. They are also one of the very few shops in Nelson that repair things.

On Friday I wanted the heels of one of my favorite pairs fixed, and dropped them off first thing in the morning and said I'd come pick them up before they close at 5. Naughty me, I was having so much fun talking to a girlfriend I arrive just as the owner was driving away, in that tiny yellow car, at around 5.07. He saw me and reopened the shop and let me get my shoes. And they were fixed for a mere $20.

So, cheers to local heroes.

I found these large, (lifesize?) photos of buskers in Bank Lane. It's a photographic project to coincide with the Arts Festival, apparently.
There were so many great photos, so I shot the ones I could without getting in anyone's way yesterday morning.

Clear day

Blue sky, little breeze and warm weather...

Extra shot of the day!
 It's a spring after all.

Baby Got Black

Great burger at Burger Culture. 

I quite liked this black bun they served.  This title of post is the name of menu in picture.  The onion ring is a extra side..  It was quite filling and very tasty and satisfactory.
