This was an amazing old derelict farm house I spotted as my friend  Dianne & I drove  out of Taumaranui, so we stopped...as I took these photos a cheeky fantail flew into the house through  the open door, this place was surrounded by  a sea of hundreds of golden yellow  buttercups......some lovely farm sheds with ancient  tractor out the back.......H.

A colourful patchwork of time,  this  old garage/workshop Whakamaru New Zealand  copyright H.G.Blomfield 2010 ...

Here are some photos of old farm/town buildings etc.,,  spotted around the New Zealand countryside.... forgotten relics of a colonial past... rusty roofs, faded time worn timbers.. these were once homes etc., now they  quietly settle back  into the fabric of time.....enjoy going down memory lane......
