A Country Morning
November is a perfect time in Canterbury.
The skies are blue, the temperatures hot (mostly) and leaves are newly minted in a million shades of green. I thought that this morning when I drove out into the country again - this time to Taitapu, a rural area (with nearby township) about 35 minutes from central Christchurch. I love this area. It's how I image some of the English countryside might look - rolling green fields, narrow roads with wide grassy verges, big hawthorn hedges.......and nothing but the birds and the cows.
