This photo was taken a while ago while walking amongst some trees on a day in autumn. The lovely bright orange, gold and brown leaves beckoned to be photographed as they clung to the branch, shortly to be cast off, their job now completed.
This good-looking lass was 'working' in the Vegetable Garden at the Hamilton Gardens.
As you can see, she is in fact a 'scarecrow' figure, probably either made by the Council staff for a bit of fun, or made by children from a Hamilton School, which happens from time to time when an inter-school scarecrow competition is held occasionally. It all adds interest to a Gardens tour.
I live in Hamilton, the largest inland city in New Zealand, stretching across both sides of the Waikato River in the North Island, south of Auckland.
