Day 335

I'm only just going to make it in time for today's post - it's a quarter to midnight! It was our book club Christmas party tonight, and we had a meal at a pub in town and exchanged presents. I gave a framed print of one of my photos, and I was given a pair of beautiful handmade Christmas tree decorations in the shape of native New Zealand birds. I love them!

This one's a morepork (Māori name: ruru) - the only remaining native owl.

This one's a fantail (Māori name: pīwakawaka) - the gorgeous little bird I named my house after.


  1. cool, moreporks are my favorite native creature

  2. Ooh, I love anonymous comments. :-D I like to try and work out who wrote them. It's got to be an American (that 'favorite' gives it away) who has lived in New Zealand at some point. But it can't be Melissa, because she'd never write a comment without any punctuation. I guess Alex. Do I get a prize if I'm right?! :P

  3. Helen, these are gorgeous!
    I'll bet they will look wonderful on your tree.
