Four seasons

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.   


 But I'm glad it is!

  2. Rhododendrons are very attractive but also invasive and the very devil to get rid of.

  3. So pretty, i know you love the blooms any time of year. You are so right, it's not easy to stand in the rain and watch sports unless you really love the sport or one of the players.

  4. Those blooms are so pretty. I always enjoy a bit of fog, as long as I can stay home and enjoy it :)

  5. Your blooms look much the same as what's going on in my garden too.

  7. I can sympathise with you. Watching rugby in the rain would not be fun. The flowers look great against the blue sky.
