This is a photograph that I would normally take in December and use it as my Christmas Postcard. This is when the Pohutukawa called the New Zealand Christmas Tree blooms. I took this photograph on July 23rd in the small town of Matakohe, in New Zealand’s Northland. Blame it on the warmer than usual winter this year or global warming. In any event it was a beautiful sight to see and photograph, particularly with the bees busy doing their job.

Matakohe, at 2 hours drive north of Auckland, is famous for its Kauri Museum.
But the Post Office was a no less beautiful and quite a photogenic sight!
