Window dressing really make your home look great.

Nanette from

Hello Neighbours. I had an inspiration on how to get my window's to help beautify my home. Have you thought about making your net curtains gather downwards rather than across? It is a lot easier than you think, if there is interest in this, I will put instructions on how to do this on my post next week. Check out how they look in the pictures attactched to this post. Thanks for reading this post and hope you all keep well and are getting through the affects of this pandemic.

Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Rare white and yellow pōhutukawa trees

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. Our beautiful red pōhutukawa trees (or New Zealand's Christmas trees) are just about in full bloom.
However, not all pōhutukawa trees are red. Have you seen any yellow or white pōhutukawa trees in your local area? We'd love to see your photos. Feel free to leave a photo in the comments or email me the tree's location at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz
