Everywhere we go I am starting to see Christmas. NZ is not very big on decorating for Christmas when compared to the USA, but I can understand why, who wants to decorate when it is summer and all everyone wants to do is enjoy the nice weather outside. Anyways I am starting to see decorations everywhere we go and its only December 3rd.
Tuesday and Wednesday this week we did some shopping and ran some errands. I dropped off this piece of art at an exhibit I entered at the Bruce Mason Theater in Takapuna.
Thursday my mom and I took off for the day and headed to the sky tower for lunch. The sky tower has the biggest tree I have ever seen.
As a promotion they have stuck a car on the side of the sky tower and it looks pretty amazing.
After lunch and a quick walk around the city we headed out to the botanical gardens. Everything is in bloom since it is spring here in NZ.
These flowers were very bright red and reminded me of Christmas.
I am not really sure what my mom is doing here but it looks cool!
Below I finally figured out how to take a close up photo with my camera.
I love blue flowers.
