Last January we were in Auckland for a few days, and the brilliant colours of flowers there were stunning , most of these were overhanging the fences or walls at the edges of the footpath.
Mauve hydrangea, with some darker petals below.
Golden, tinged with deeper apricot/orange.

Very unseasonable, wonderful for the tourists, not so good for the farmers .
