The last daisies of summer are still flowering happily in the garden, despite the fact that March has roared in with a full winter blast.
The lower part of the North Island was hit by a weather bomb yesterday. We got off very easily with just one broken branch on the Acacia tree at the bottom of the garden. I heard it crack as it broke but could not spot the damage at first. I am hoping that March will creep out like a lamb and somewhere around the corner there is an Indian Summer just waiting to heat us all up again.
