Number 5 Restaurant

Number 5 is a great restaurant with quality food and a warm atmosphere.

It’s a small red building at city road which opens up to a relatively big space once entered. The food is beautifully prepared and delicious. Excellent wine list. The staff is attentive and very pleasant. The setting is very romantic and classy.

It would be a great place to bring someone you love or love to impress.

A new postcard

Our new postcard design in maori style. From New Zealand with love!

What comes to your mind when you think about postcards? Perhaps you are thinking of those long ago days when a postcard came to your house from a relative or friend who was visiting some place on vacation.
You can even design a postcard for more than just correspondence: create a postcard to promote your business, service, or event. Designing a postcard is a flashy, friendly way to get your message in the mail, passed around town, or shared across the internet.

Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria Floribunda)

1/64 sec | f/14 | ISO 320

Dramatic clusters of blue-violet to red-violet flowers with an intoxicating fragrance grace this vigorous twining climber. Its springtime cascading flower clusters can grow to 3 feet long or more in some cultivars. Blooms typically open first at the base and last at the tip of each cluster. Trunk diameter can reach 7 to 8 inches after 20 years, and the plant can climb to 35 or more feet in height, though its size is easily controlled by pruning.
