Sumner II

Sumner is like a little town with a few shops. The one above here is like a piece of art. There is also a cinema and some good restaurants.
Sumner is a few degrees warmer than the rest of Christchurch and you find here lots of palm trees and other beautiful ones. I found this one very nice. Anybody knows what this is?

  1. sumner is realy a nice place to be.
    I was there when I was with you in christchurch and I love it to walk around on the beach and have a picknick there.
    next year, when the wether is good, we have to back again to sumner for a great day at the beach.

  2. Sumner is a beautiful place. I've only travelled there once but I intend to again some day.

  3. It's award time. Come on by and collect yours, just follow the link: "What a Way to Begin the Week! "

  4. Sumner looks me a beautiful place. I wished I could visit it.

  6. Bert I've just bought a new pick nick basket so there you go.

    Oh MMP that's so kind thank you so much

    Erik I am sure your time will com

    Rebicmel you're one of the nicest people I know. Who could wish for a better friend.

  7. The pictures are great and the one of the bench and boots is cute!

  8. Love those pictures!
    I think the tree you featured is an Australian Native called a Banksia. They have those odd crusty looking seed pods, which need a good fire to make them germinate.

  9. Yeh I love the boots too

    Thanks for the information Meggie

  10. Hi Marja! You are a wonderful photographer!! I love these pictures. Great compositions. The boots on the bench gave me a big smile!

  11. I want you to know that I was here when you first posted this and before anyone posted I was trying to find out the name of that tree. I searched all trees in New Zealand and came up empty handed!
