Sewer drain cover, Palmerston North
When I was traveling overseas I noticed some elaborate drain covers in some cities. But until I started taking more photos for more regular blog posts at home, I don't think I had ever noticed that Palmerston North has an exquisite set of its own drain covers. They feature some of our native fish and plants. This one shows the toetoe. It is often confused with pampas grass, a non-native, invasive pest species.
