Remembering Spring........

..... in Christchurch, New Zealand.








A memory of our first trip to Christchurch was one of shock and sadness as we viewed crumbled buildings and devastation beyond imagination, everywhere we traveled, caused by multiple major earthquakes that hit the Christchurch area several years ago.   
Our last trip to Christchurch was filled with the beauty of spring, renewal, and the tenacity and determination of the wonderful people living here who are rebuilding their homes, their city and their lives.

Fabulous photography. Where were those beautiful trees in blossom? I'd love to go and see it for myself. We may be going to NZ next year.

Wow Karen I love the spring fever that is filled up in each and every photo here. Now I really feel spring hit the earth...not if I look outside...it's stil very cold and gray here.
So thanks for sending color into my space.
Hugs and happy weekend.
