We had rain, rain and more rain the whole week.
Thursday morning I opened my curtains just before six am. The sky was breathtaking, I had to take some photos.
January 2019 is halfway. The weather is hot and dry. I have to water my veggie garden to keep them fresh and growing.
They are growing that’s sure!
Lettuce, spinach. onions , capsicum and tomatoes.
I’m looking forward to picking them.
Lots of apricots. I hope they ripen before the hot weather turns cold again.
Flowers in my garden.
Kōwhai (Māori pronunciation: [kɔːɸai] or [kɔːfai]) are small woody legume trees within the genus Sophora that are native to New Zealand. There are eight species, with Sophora microphylla and S. tetraptera being the most recognised as large trees. Their natural habitat is beside streams and on the edges of forest, in lowland or mountain open areas. Kōwhai trees grow throughout the country and are a common feature in New Zealand gardens. Outside of New Zealand, kōwhai tend to be restricted to mild temperate maritime climates.
Merry Christmas to all.
I hope you all have a wonderful time.
The Pukeko class had some lovely decorations.
As you can see the photographer is also in the picture!
Last three to four weeks we had unusual weather. It was still just over 20 degrees C which is quite hot for this time of year. We also had a lot of rain too. The warm weather brought two cyclones. Cyclone Debbie was the first one and less than a week it was followed by cyclone Cook. Debbie did not reach us in the lower North Island but cyclone Cook brought heavy rain and strong winds. People were asked to put their long weekend arrangements on hold because some roads were expected to wash away, slips could also occur.
As soon as the weather cleared again I found more toadstools popping out. I found these on the lawn on the roadside.
