Blechnum Fern

Next to our front door we have a blechnum fern. Always enjoy seeing the unfurling fronds.

You might notice the bits of ‘fluff’ here: the nymphs (“fluffybums”) of the passion vine hopper are already out and about. I am puzzled how these teeny critters can appear in force on totally new vegetation (i.e. a long distance away from where eggs might have been deposited at the end of the previous season).

Te Atatu Mural by Cliff Uepa

The big Te Atatu mural by Cliff Uepa identifies the shop behind the large wall next to the Te Atatu Peninsula Roundabout, and also advertises all that you could meet in and around Te Atatu. Boats, Sky Tower, Harbour Bridge, Waitakere Ranges, surfers, beaches, wildlife of all manner, and then some. Too big to fit into one frame…
