We came over to Wanaka on Friday evening and were greeted by a starry sky. That promised a hard frost, which we got, but it was worth it for the views from Mount Iron of blue skies, snow clad mountains and millpond lake.
We spent most of the day at Millers Flat. The road there from Wanaka goes past Lake Dunstan and through Alexandra. The grape vines we passed en route were still wearing winter clothes but the cherry trees were in blossom.
The recent snow and rain have replenished moisture levels in the soil and the pasture is starting to change from winter brown to spring green.
Wanaka gave us another frost and sunny skies this morning but there’s work to be done back home so we can’t stay to enjoy it.
