Finally winter – cold nights

I love the seasons and their distinctive differences. Autumn with its colours and now winter with their crisp, cold and blue mornings. I went down the valley this morning to feed the cows and alpacas. We feed they hay to warm them up and they love it. Took some pictures on they way. The alpacas greeted me with frost on their backs. What a lovely cold morning.

According to the media, yesterday was the coldest night in Auckland this year. Well, if so, then last night was colder.

A visit to the cow

We did a roundtrip down the hill for pine cone collecting, fence fixing, alpaca seeing and moo encounter.

Drove down into the valley today to check up on the alpacas and the cheeky moo.
