Pretending to look super calm and in touch with nature but I was actually super scared and sweaty. Lol. #howprettythough #bluemountains #cabbagetree

I don't normally take selfies, but when I do, they're on mountains. #cabbagetree #valeofavoca #mountains #explore #grosevale

"The cabbage tree is one of the most distinctive trees in the New Zealand landscape, they grow all over the country.
Interesting fact: The trunk of the cabbage tree is so fire-resistant that early European settlers used it to make chimneys for their huts. Conveniently, too, the leaves made fine kindling.
And: They also brewed beer from the root."

It's interesting how film manages to bring back memories that regular shots can't. This kinda summed up the feeling after arriving; hot, windy, and salty, but at the same time a bloody cool place to be.

This juxtaposition of soft and rugged caught my eye today in the cafe garden @UntouchedWorldNZ The soft grey foliage is possibly an understorey coprosma and the vertical statement of a stem is a young cabbage tree reaching for the light - both create a pared down evocation of forested places close to home.

Beautiful sunrise here this Monday morning. #goodmorning #morningsun #clouds #cabbagetree #nznative

I am sooo easily distracted! I went out for a quick walk around Halswell quarry (20mins) and ended up getting down and dirty and freeing any of the natives that had been smothered with grass and flood debris! Haha there for about 2 hrs until it was dark and I couldn't see the plants anymore haha!

A plump wood pigeon or kererū, vitally important seed disperser of the New Zealand forest 🍒Photographed on my most recent trip home.
Kererū fill their days with endearing pigeon-esque activities such as eating until they almost can't fly, finding the flimsiest perches possible, and building the most delightfully inadequate nests 🐦🌿
