Cromwell

Cromwell, a small town at what once was the confluence
 of the Clutha and Kawarau rivers until a dam 
was built on the Clutha River down stream of Cromwell.
It now sits where the Kawarau runs into the lake formed by the water 
backing up from the dam, which is built at Clyde. 
Much of the original township is under water,
along with many stone fruit orchards.

Grow Your Blog

I am joining Vicki at 2 bags full for her Grow your blog party.
Below is just a little information about me and my blog.
I hope you will enjoy what you read and
maybe even join me as I go along.

2 Bags Full

My name is Diana and I'm retired. 
I love to take photo's but am no expert.
I started this blog as a personal challenge and have had it going for a year or so now.
To start with I was trying to post a picture each day for a year showing what was going on in my life at the time. This year I have decided to post a photo a day but not necessarily about myself, no theme at present.
A couple of times a week I like to take part in a couple of blog parties, it can be fun seeing what is going on in other parts of the world. 

I want to learn to take better pictures without it becoming a chore.


This is me with Tabitha the donkey. No, she doesn't belong to us.
We have a large ginger cat.

Islington

Out walking one day and came across Islington,
 one of the original big homes on the Taieri.
A hedge is a fence, yes, no?
