Clevedon Scenic Reserve

These spectacular female flowers of Coprosma spathulata, seen on a Bot Soc (Auckland Botanical  Society) walk on Saturday reminds me that most New Zealand plants are very subtle when it comes to showing off their flowers.

This was an excellent walk mostly up steps (750) through some beautiful bush just outside of Clevedon.

 An ideal place for Aucklanders to visit with access to local  cafes for their flat whites and a neat waterfall for a summer picnic.
