pukeko in the rain

The last day of August, the last (official) day of Winter and the last day of the 'August break': this picture gives you a good idea of what August has been like in Auckland - wet! About ten minutes before it was taken the sky was blue and the sun was shining..but that's Auckland for you - four seasons in one day.
I've loved taking part in this project - thanks to Susannah for initiating it!

Anika is sure that that is Father Christmas' house up there on the hill and those are his reindeer grazing in the field.

remembering summer

I dug this picture out of the archives today, taken at Hahei on the Coromandel Peninsula in January this year. It's been so cold and wet around here lately I felt like a reminder of sunshine!
