Home from Melbourne, The Big T and I spent the day on post-holiday chores, amongst them lawn-mowing. These beautiful little flowers form a carpet amongst our trees and T kindly spared them from the blades so I could photograph them.

So here’s one I prepared earlier

My blogging week is looking to be a bit disrupted, so I thought I’d take this as an opportunity to offer something I made earlier.

I’ve scheduled a few posts for the coming days, with images I shot of the beautiful and tiny plants growing around the snowline on Mt Ruapehu.

I don’t know what any of them are sadly, so if anyone in this wonderful blogging community with more botanical knowledge than me does know — please share.

And thank you to the BBC’s Blue Peter for the title of the post series.
