FSO....W is for

Waiotira or Whangarei. The farm where I live is in Waiotira but other than a few other farms, that's all that's here.  Whangarei is where I work, our nearest large town.  Either way, I can't escape the letter W when it comes to the letter my town begins with.  

Water ... we haven't had enough of it this year.  Even the weeds haven't survived.


Except that which grows on the water There's far too much of that.

 

 With or without rain the farm children continue to grow like weeds:


Yesterday afternoon after work I walked beside the water in the Town Basin with it's colourful watercraft:


the nautical version of window boxes:


and wind generators:


I'll be visiting the rest of the FSO team here.  Wish me luck with the Spotlight photos!

  4. Lots of good 'w's there!
    We are having lots of rain now, but I will not complain, because come July everything will be dry as a bone and we'll be praying that our well won't go dry.
