As those of you in the Northern Hemisphere are going through winter at the moment us kiwis in the Southern Hemisphere are attempting to get into Summer. On Saturday after completing a library trip by returning 8 books the teens had taken out, renewed one of mine and wandered around taking photos. This one above is a blue Hydrangea lining a fence outside an old rustic shed.
These lovely miniature pink ones were for sale in small plant pots at one of the stalls outside the Mangawhai village markets.
You can't have summer without Hydreangeas I think - one of my favourite flowers!
