One misplaced Waipa District recycle bin

Lurking about the corner of Noel and Shakespeare for the past three or four days. It has just the one character on its address panel ‘2’. A bit of the travelling gnomes. If you know whose it is text or email me so it can be returned.

Autumn leaf, Shakespeare Street, Leamington New Zealand

Cambridge and Leamington (by association) and the fact it forms half of our town, has had the marketing byline Town of Trees for some time. It works. Yes, there is the addition but lets just stick with this for the moment. Most of the trees lining the streets, on both sides of the river, are exotics and deciduous so at this time of the year we have leaves – lots of leaves. This can be charming for five minutes. Today in blustery weather there are leaves blowing every which way and things have become rather messy and cluttered and, not to put too fine a point on it, rather dirty and dejected looking. Then you get this – the impression of a fallen leaf stained into the footpath here on Shakespeare Street, just south of the shops. It has the look of a prehistoric rock painting.
