We're lucky to have kowhai growing right beside the road. I would have liked a few more sheep in the shot or to have been able to safely pull off the road at a place where they were more visible. But a narrow country road has its restrictions.
I thought if I got out of the car and walked to get a better shot of these young guys I would have disturbed them and they looked so fat and contented I couldn't do that to them.
Fat and happy
I was lucky to enjoy the drive yesterday between heavy showers. Today it's extremely blustery, the showers very heavy. Hail on the roof last night was so loud I opened the front door to check on the size of the hailstones. Nothing too alarming and it was over quickly. I often remember that the girl next door when I was growing up used to tell me my letters during the school holidays (when I visited my grandparents' farm), were like weather reports. I guess nothing has changed, Mary except now I live on a farm and am more weather obsessed than ever.
