They seem to be flowering everywhere, along the roads, by watercourses, in wetlands. Very pretty, and fluffy as a kitten. And a weed. A fast growing tree up to 10 metres high.

On yesterday’s seriously cold morning, the mist drifts across the lake as the sun rises behind the ridge.

It has to be one of the most understated welcome signs – maybe a bit like Green Bay itself?

Oystercatchers

Oystercatchers

Last Tuesday afternoon near full tide. A good sized flock of oystercatchers were roosting on the sandbank by Titirangi Beach. Suddenly, on no apparent signal, they lifted off, flying out into Paturoa Bay, turning a few circles, and settling down again. Beautiful.

As the tide came further in, their patch of sand got smaller and smaller, and the march to the shore began.

While some of us subscribe to the motto “Let us eat cake”, this sentiment is by no means universal. Here is Mrs H’s creative alternative to a birthday cake for our good friend Ingrid.
