It seems unseasonably warm but I’m not complaining. This evening saw us marching briskly up Kakepuku (and back down, of course). We must be getting fitter because it felt like we were going steadily but it was actually or 2nd fastest time!
We finally got round to planting the Black Boy Peach that Terry gave us last year. Nigel spent a hard day in the garden preparing ground and generally tidying things up.
A good day to attack the weeds and uncover hidden gems.
Last day of the month… Good day for a double Kakepuku. Only two weeks until Abel Tasman now. It was a beautiful morning to be out and no apologies for yet another dubious photo of a Tui in a tree!!
Spring is definitely here along with changeable weather. Sunshine and showers. Tui and blossom! So many of them in this tree along the river trail.
Spring is here today and I made the most of a local school meeting to walk. Then walked into town through Memorial Park to pick up a car. Sneaky midday run along the river before driving to AKL.
Made it out for a run through the gardens and along the river between and in showers! Spring is springing!
A great day out in the river trails today. Building distances now for Abel Tasman in October. Scarily close! Managed 28km reasonably comfortably with plenty of elevation. It must be spring because the air was full of pollen. It almost looked like must until we saw the yellow dust settling on our clothes
So many daffodils in flower now…Spring seems to be in the cusp. But I also love the hellebores or winter roses. The daffodils have a freshness of new life about them but the hellebores have a quiet beauty, understated, not so brash.
