Rain rain rain - where is Summer?


So we're not asking where is Summer? When the Pohutukawa flowers bloom here it's a kiwi belief that it means we are in for a good hot season. These above, around the corner from my house came out late November but since then we've had rain on and off and only a fine days - not that I"m complaining. I know sooner or later the hot sunny days will come but for now the water is filling up my tank and helping the farmers.

  2. Oh my gosh that is a fabulous flower. Rain can be a blessing but also a curse when it causes damage. We have farming family in North Dakota and hear all about rain and crops and so on.

    1. yes it gets very very dry here, we're a seaside coastal town so the sand doesn't absorb much. I know the farmers will be happy with the rain though.

  3. I love to see these red blooms, they make me smile knowing that summer is on the way! We've had a few days that I would consider 'summery' but rain at night (not as much as Stratford--which is ALWAYS wet!). I can get out and walk down the road, so I'm happy.
