Spring 2010. It’s the middle of a sunny day, in mid-October. While things in Christchurch were far from pre-earthquake normal, compared with what was to come, most of us were still able to escape to corners where we could feel normal for a while. So we stopped in at Little Hagley and enjoyed some time playing with the flowers and new leaves on the trees.
This beautiful little tree was tucked in amongst its elders, with a blue carpet at its feet. It was breezy, so it was dancing around in the sunshine.
