Life is wonderful! At the @westcoastnewzealand I really don’t find any words to describe the beauty of this nature. I got totally banned and I have to go to that little big paradise again 😌 🏳️‍🌈 #nzmustdoagain See you there, silver fern! 🦜🌿🌴🦚🍀 🌊🐳 #westcoast #westcoasttrail #heaphytrack #nzgreatwalks #heaphytrackgreatwalk #newzealandflax #silverfern #rainforest #kohaihai #karamea #capturenz #capturenewzealand #newzealand #newzealandfinds #newzealandvacations #newzealandtrip #roadtripnewzealand #newzealandwithme #ig_newzealand #destinationnz #newzealandnature #newzealandnatural #newzealandphotography #kiwiphotos #kiwi_photos #newzealandlife #southislandnewzealand #southislandnz
On my roadtrip along the Westcoast I stopped at Punakaiki. A geological phenomenon called Pancake Rocks. 🥞 It’s not yet sure why the layers are shifted upon each other so precisely. But especially in the evening hours the light on the coast is wonderful and a #nzmustdo I love the green Westcoast 🌿 🌊 🌴 #mustdonz #mustdonewzealand #southisland #southislandnewzealand #southislandnzroadtrip #roadtripnz #destinationnewzealand #natureofnewzealand #purenz #purenewzealand #purenature #nz #newzealandgram #gottalovenz #newzealandfinds #newzealandwithme #embracetheunexpected #westcoastnz #capturenz #newzealandgram #punakaki #punakaiki #pancakerocks #pancakerocksandblowholes #blowholes #newzealandflax
I thought you’d love this mutant leaf! Aren’t plants crazy cool?! Even with all the natural variety they still freak out and get all deviant. Is it to get our attention like kids do? Or for their own planty amusement? Perhaps a creeping little larvae is responsible?🤔😁😍. . . . #mutantleaf #plantsarecool #phormium #newzealandflax #carexpraegracilis #westernmeadowsedge #meadowgarden #openyourdoors to #naturesbeauty
Another day another bird 😊🐦 Our variegated New Zealand flax has flowered and the honey eaters are loving it. They are squawky little guys and always announce their arrival 😊🐦#kadesbirdsinthegarden #honeyeater #newzealandflax #kadespatch
Honey bees diving for nectar deep within the flower trumpets of Harakeke, New Zealand flax. Phormium. #phormium . #harakeke . #newzealandflax . #honeybees . #summer #newzealandgardens . #littlehaven . #newzealandsummer
Who can resist flax flower nectar? No wonder the Tuis love them - so delicious!!
Great start to the week yesterday, shout out to Rosayln and Bridget who attended a Wedding over the weekend and stopped by for a chat, great meeting you both and thanks again! The rest of the day was filled with getting this sad looking New Zealand Flax up to a good standard and pruning an apple tree and wrapping it up with festive lights. 🎄 • • • #happygardener #goodmorning #gardener #newzealandflax #beforeandafter #autumngarden
On a chilly murky day like today it’s nice to head into one of our tunnels to get lost amongst the Phormiums and imagine you are in New Zealand #phormium #nzplants #ukgrown #autumn #newzealandflax

Learning to weave at the #fieldsofhealingfestival with my mama! . I love this cultural tradition of weaving baskets, pouches and bags from natural materials! We made flowers from New Zealand flax and decorated it with shells, seeds and beads. . A lovely way to spend a Sunday! . . . #devidesigns #weaving #creativityeveryday #mothernaturesgifts #naturalcraft #handmadecrafts #communityday #communitygathering #byronshire #northernnsw #indigenousfestival #artistic_nation #delamaydeviyoga #newzealandflax #weavingart #skillsforlife

Cape Foulwind is a prominent headland on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island, overlooking the Tasman Sea. It was previously named Rocky Cape by Abel Tasman, the first European to visit it in 1642. The present name was bestowed upon this promontory by English explorer James Cook in 1770 after his ship Endeavour was blown quite a distance offshore from this point. Tauranga Bay at Cape Foulwind is home to a fur seal breeding colony, which is accessible by a well-maintained walking track. That track, the Cape Foulwind Walkway crosses over undulating farmland, and along the edge of a scenic coastal escarpment. One of the pictures show again the New Zealand flax (Phormium tenax). During the early Musket Wars and later New Zealand wars, Māori used large, thickly woven flax mats to cover entrances and lookout holes in their "gunfighter's pā" fortifications. I have seen a lot of flax plants (even tried to plant some in the Netherlands from smuggled seed) but unfortunately I haven't seen the fur seals (so I didn't smuggle them into the Netherlands) the last time I was at Cape Foulwind. In the previous years I could easily visit their rocks, but somehow I couldn't find that place the last time I was there. However the scenery was unchanged beautiful@Cape Foulwind, Buller District, NZ . . #capefoulwind #capefoulwindwalkway #capefoulwindnewzealand #bullerdistrict #tasmansea #tasmansea 🌊 #rockycape #farmland #coastal #escarpment #escarpmenttrail #jamescook #taurangabay #nzflax #newzealandflax #phormiumtenax #newzealand #purenewzealand #newzealandlife #aotearoa #aotearoanz #visitnewzealand #nieuwzeeland
I'm not sure if this is #newzealandflax but it was lovely to look at in the early morning rain. #newzealand / #aotearoa #puckettexcursions
#newzealandflax #fatsiaspiderweb #hebe #heuchera #cyclamen #midwinterfiredogwood #Phormiumtenaxatropurpureum Newzealand flax is one of my favorite all season plants whether it is in containers or in the garden. The dark bronze leathery flat leaves makes it a bold and dramatic display plant in the garden. Fatsia spiderweb is a plant I love to use especially in fall and winter in containers and in spring I repurpose it by moving it to the shady areas of garden where nothing grows. Try Fatsia! It will grow well in shade! For color, cyclamen, heuchera and twig dogwoods are used♥️♥️
Learned how to weave. a friend taught me how this simple weaving technique. Using New Zealand flax. After couple of days it turned into almost metallic. prefect combination with this spider chrysanthemums and berries. •• #sogetsuikebana #homesweethome #sogetsustyle #sogetsusanfranciscobranch #sogetsu #newzealandflax #spidermum #sanfranciscotokyonewyorksanfrancisco

Native New Zealand harakeke flax flowers, hydrangea and aralia leaves arranged to represent a large cactus. One of our most beautiful and abundant native flowers are totally under represented and under used in the New Zealand flower world.

This morning although it was still very cold I noticed 4 or 5 bumblebees hovering near the base of an #astelia - some astelias look very like a #newzealand flax ( #phormiumtenax ) but they are a completely different plant. Puzzled I peered between the leaves and saw the astelia was secretly in flagrant gorgeous flower and was drawing the bees and other insects even in the cold. Unlike the #newzealandflax which displays its nectar-rich flowers very prominently on long woody stalks, the #astelia (Kahaka?) conceals its flowers at the heart of its leaves. Later it will have berries which are apparently edible though bland.

Multipost: When we were at McLaren Falls yesterday, we noticed that someone had folded these native flax leaves into pretty designs on one of the bushes. So clever!💚#flax #newzealandflax #plantart #mclarenfalls #newzealand #northisland #northislandnz #plant #plantlife #nature #naturephotography
