Stars for Matariki

Matariki – Māori New Year – is celebrated when the constellation of Pleiades (the Seven Sisters) rises above the horizon about June each Year. More and more embraced as an occasion with a genuine New Zealand identity. I happened across a cluster of more than seven stars, looking down instead of up as I walked across the Auckland Domain yesterday.

Various celebrations for about a month starting June 18.

    Pretty leaves, and quite a variety.
