If winter’s here . . .

Calving is in full swing, the first daffodil is in bloom in my garden and one brave rhododendron is flowering but it’s too soon to call it spring.

But  Keeping Stock warns winter’s tail can have a sting and Fairfacts Media reports the home fires are still burning in Kerikeri.

After a beautifully sunny day yesterdaythe house was warm enough to get by with a heater rather than a fire last night. But we woke to a frost this morning and it was -2 when I parked the car at the bottom of the hill which I’m tackling for my morning constitutional.

    Any farmer knows it is spring when the grass starts to grow again
    And you don’t need a fire/heater going all day

    You are allowed frosts in spring, when they stop it is summer
