Not much going on around here. The southern parts of New Zealand are reaching record Winter temperatures. The Polar blast is being felt all over NZ. We have had something like our 4th frost in a row, and even north of Auckland had frosts.
All of the above could quite easily make us all go bah humbug, it's cold, it's freezing. Yes it is, but one thing I am so grateful for is the fact that I am safely snuggled up in the warmth of a home and have shelter.
So there is nothing nuts about me. But these 'nuts' on this tree intrigued me today. This tree is part of our daily walk and I have never seen the tree in bloom as such. It never actually flowers, and these are a first.
