Watching the sky and wondering how much colder it will get before it rains. Because it is going to rain. I'm so sure, I've scrapped my plans to go and watch the local rugby team this afternoon. My son coaches them and I haven't been much of a supporter. When the sun was shining this morning I felt the urge to change that. Then the temperature dropped and the clouds same rolling in. You have to be a hardy soul to be a rugby team supporter around here. Just standing on the side line for 80 plus minutes is hard enough for me. Standing in the rain - out of the question. Fair weather fan I am.
Mind you the morning started very foggily.
By mid morning I was admiring the rhododendron, so pretty against a deep blue sky.
I've already booked my ticket to be in Taranaki for the Garden Festival this November. The festival used to be called the Rhododendron Festival and they are flowering everywhere in that region at that time of year. Why my tree is flowering now I have no idea.
