This is one of my favourite times of the year – when the red flowers on the native New Zealand Pohutukawa trees appear. I love it how you can instantly spot the red flowers in a cluster of trees – and how perfect that they usually arrive around Christmas-time too . This year we’ve been extra lucky – as they’ve been blooming well into late January, and I honestly couldn’t feel more grateful!

All of the sunshine lately has made me feel like exploring, which is basically my favourite thing ever! When we stumbled upon this winding path through the trees, it almost felt like we were entering a whole other world. But hey, if other worlds mean that trees are bright red, and that wild daisies grow every couple of metres, then sign me up! (& I’ll even bring my red ribbon too!)

If I haven’t mentioned my love of dogs before.. well, then clearly I haven’t got my priorities right! I’ve been dog-mad for as long as I can remember – carrying round the ‘pocket book of dog breeds’ when I was little, and very much having my dream canine picked out from age 8 (Afghan hound anyone?!) When I first started dating Barnaby he had four dogs, and we always joked that that was the real reason we got together. Well, it certainly gave him an advantage! ; )

So it makes complete sense that this Pepa Loves weenie dog clutch is one of my most-loved pieces in my wardrobe – with this Henry Holland poodle top well on it’s way to joining in! We darted down one of my favourite alleyways (besides ol’ yeller) and quickly snapped these photos.
