Summer flowers in New York

Fort Tryon Park is near the north end of Manhattan, and in spring and early summer it is filled with colours. This is a great masterwort (Astrantia major) in all its glory.

Kuirau Park, Rotorua

Rotorua is in a very geologically-active location; the water in this pond is constantly bubbling, and there are hot steam vents all over the park – which is right next to the city centre.
