Fireworks @ Tikorangi celebrating Claudia & Brent's wedding

It rained, and rained and rained. Then, happily, we had a respite for our garden wedding; the ceremony, the celebrations, the photography and the fireworks. It was all rather fabulous.

Taranaki landscape

Taranaki landscape Te Popo area

I keep saying I have issues with landscape. I can’t be bothered photographing anything I can’t drive past or readily walk to. A fine tradition to be sure but it does tend to restrict. No, it’s not that – a landscape has to make itself known to me – I don’t go looking. Anyway, the point is not landscape it’s The landscape – this one just happens to be in front of us at the moment. And, when I do find something I don’t muck about – two takes – you can check the day gallery for the companion, 20 seconds to take both and 10 minutes just now deciding which to feature here. This is solitude, comfort, Te Ika a Maui, Taranaki and Waikato – Rangiaowhia and Parihaka and everywhere between. Yeah that, and what’s just around the corner :). BTW the fence is in good nick, of course, despite the wandering battens.

Photo made 27/12/2010 somewhere in the map below.

Pukekura Park, New Plymouth, New Zealand


Pukekura, New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand

I went to look at the Pukekura Park lights on my own this evening, Boxing Day, the 26th of December 2010. This had the distinct advantage of my being able to move quickly through the large mass of folk present. Not too much new but enjoyable for a whole host of visual reasons. I was though taken with the ultra violet light display shown here in a short video and a photo. Very nicely done.

This post is dedicated to Kelly & Joel (..and rest of the family) xox 31/12/2010

Christmas Tree, Tikorangi, Taranaki, New Zealand

The 2010 Tikorangi / Jury family Christmas tree has been variously described as looking like Cousin It and an Ent. You can read all about its construction here. (Cousin It is much closer to the mark).

Abbie Jury: Ficus antiarus, rare plants

Ficus antiarus, rare plants and why only one plant in our garden is clearly named

It is Ficus antiarus and it is the most asked about plant in our garden. We used to propagate a few but we realised that while everybody wanted to know what it was, nobody wanted to buy it.

Abbie Jury | A hot, dry autumn in Spain and Portugal

Abbie has just returned from a trip through Spain and Portugal.

The olive plantations looked to be corporate farming, much as our dairy farming is headed. The era of the small family farm appeared to be over in much of the countryside that we passed through. Often there were no residences visible for considerable distances and no indications of boundaries to suggest the smaller holdings of old. It was interesting to reflect on the debate at home regarding lifestylers populating our countryside. We had been discussing it before I left and came to the conclusion that, on balance, small holdings and lifestyle blocks add a welcome diversity to the countryside.

The ubiquitous date palm was everywhere in the south of Spain and Portugal Clipping the street plantings of orange trees to lollipops in Cordoba The cordyline australis had seen better days on the Algarve but had done well at some stage to reach this size

Looking west from the eastern bank towards New Plymouth. Given clear skies, I’m assured Maunga Taranaki can be seen – slightly to the left is my guess.

I spend a brief seven or so hours at Pukekura Park in New Plymouth today. A delightful time of relaxing, people watching and music. Surprisingly not that much photo making. Highlight for me is the band of brothers – Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – wonderful. Yes, there are some photos here.

More a murky khaki than clean and green

Most of us accept clean and green as a statement of fact for New Zealand. A clean atmosphere, yes. Overall, we enjoy what must be some of the cleanest and freshest air in the world. But once you hit ground level, it is a different story. Yes, some people are extremely clean and green, but others, and they are large in number, could not care less.

Jury Camellias

Volunteer (chance seedling) This release volunteered itself and seemed appropriate to name for the International Year of Volunteering 2001. Distinctive flowers open soft pink with white edging, deepening throughout the season to dark pink, still with the white edge until the late flowers which may be pure red. Heavy textured full anemone form. Dark foliage and compact growth to 2m. Plant Variety Rights apply in New Zealand and Australia.

I have been here for two days working off and on this and other jury.co.nz projects.
