Me posing in front of The Matterhorn, the Swiss Alps, July 2004. The first time I’ve ever had altitude sickness – which is odd given that I’m from New Zealand. When you’re young you can put up with nearly anything I guess…

Another 2 for 1: you lucky lucky people!
This is from the beautiful botanical gardens on the Western Cape, south of Cape Town, South Africa. It’s from July 2009, (their Winter, it looks even better in Spring & Summer).
It’s also my entry for this week’s Gallery, on the theme of “Trees”; again randomly selected, so again I got lucky.
Why not pop over to Tara’s Gallery at Sticky Fingers for more arboreal artistry? (click the pic):
