Day 15.

A Banksia Flower today. The many Tuis are loving the big tree covered in flowers or seed pods at various stages. Just to the left of this flower is one of the gnarly seed pods.

11mls of rain. It all helps.

Loulee that's a lovely name your sister has. I have found pink Nerines far harder to grow and clump up.  White ones even more so.

 Today's walk was a bit different and rough. ; quite windy.It started to spit so I had to run the last 100 metres.
 Along the back track and around the whole sub division a neighbour sets rat traps. The population has reduced hugely because of it. As I walk along I bend down to peer into each trap beside the track. (luckily they are usually empty )

  See the storm clouds forming...they blew over and only dropped enough drops to make me run!

 NZ is still doing well. Keep it up dear friends.

We had a beautiful day here today and even spent some time out in the garden. I cleared out the bean patch while Tony mowed the lawn.
The pictures from your walk are lovely. Good that there was only a little rain while you walked, but you guys do need more than that. The forecast says more is coming, lots more and some very cold temperatures too.

I love your banksia. So good you got a bit of rain. Fingers crossed for some more. Enjoy your walks.

I can't get nerines to flower, though they grow beautifully in a garden not far away. You're lucky to live in such a lovely place.

Lovely banksia flower, it is good you can do different walks on different days.
