A Kiwi Touch

Those of you in New Zealand, or readers of Dale's blog, will be familiar with the distinctive red pohutukawa blooms that line the North Island coast at this time of year. It's something I miss in Australia so I ordered this platter from Morris & James pottery and Mum played courier:

The pottery is close to the town where I grew up in New Zealand but they do mail order. Judging by the packaging on this platter, there is little risk of goods breaking in transit.

Eagle-eyed readers will notice that this platter has a very similar palette to the tulip urn that we have to the right of the fireplace in our living area. One of my most favourite things!

That is just beautiful! Looks like inspiration for a quilt!

Brenda I live in Wellington and have been admiring the blooms - love the plate. Rebecca
