What stunning views that I could look at all day!

The hollyhocks are lovely! I've had a love affair with them that I think began when I read the Secret Garden - I love how they grow proudly above all the other flowers.

We are further south at Arrowtown.unfortunately I left my laptop at the farm. "Cold turkey" according to son in law!!! Am trying to do this on Hughs iPad . I will try tomorrow to do a post and load some pics.

I'm hopeless at directions but no matter, you have lots of wonderful viewing there. I love your story about being offered a bed for the night on your travels...that's the sort of thing Newfoundlanders are known for. Perhaps it is a country kind of thing. My views in every direction are pretty much of fir trees, conifers all.
Lots of ice still underfoot here, but warmer temps are quickly making away with the snow.

Wonderful photos Jean - I am only just catching up on your travels so after our meal I'm going to go back to the beginning and see what you've both been doing!

Barb said...

What a fun visit you're having at the farm. The views are grand!
