I'm pleased to say that since yesterday morning it's been raining. NZ has been going through quite a severe drought. Over Summer it was very very dry, grass was brown, people around the country were running out of water, everything needed replenishing. This is the view from the front driveway of our apartment. I can't see Mount Maunganui in the distance because of the rain but it's good to see everything wet.
The new apartments being built next door are coming along, it's a pity they are so close to us but we knew when we first moved in here that they were going to be built.
But at least the geraniums and daisies in my plant pots on the deck are enjoying being fed by the raindrops.
Over the school holidays, which were in early January we were on holiday for 2 weeks and over that time we went for walks just about every day. While walking past Mount Drury one hot Summer's day there were quite a few activities set up for the kids, one of which was Pony rides. It looked very popular.
