Feels like Spring

I cannot recall when I walked across grass without that squishing sound of water and soggy ground underneath my shoes. Feels like ages ago. But then there is hope: Such a lovely day today, pity that I had to spend most of it in the office. But now it’s time to get outside and get some work done before sunset.

Here are a few photographs taken along the way from the school bus stop back home – it’s only a few hundred meters. 🙂

I hope you’ll get into spring mode too. The cows have been laying in the paddocks sucking up the sunshine, the horses looked happier today even though there is still no grass to eat around and the alpaca boy were having play fight after inspecting us closely.

New Fluffballs

One afternoon, there was Wasabi waddling around the paddock and there was a bunch of fluffballs tumbling after her, 15 little duckling.

Drylands

The last few months were pretty dry with no rainfall other than a few drops that pretty much instantly evaporated upon hitting the ground.
I think the last rain was some time before Christmas last year which would make it three months with no rain at all.

Look across the Kaipara valley with rainclouds in the background and diffuse light coming through the clouds.

Finally some rain?

It’s been a long time without any rain. Not sure how much this will be but anything is better than nothing.
