Sunny Sunday

At seven this morning I received a comment about my Fun Guy post.   In return,I promised a post about today.  So here it is.

Hawkes Bay is on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand.  Here prevailing winds are Westerly...  so we are in a rain shadow cast by the Kawekas and the Ruahines, both reaching 1700 metres.  This season has been wet.. but not so cold.  The weather people tell us this is because the weather is coming down to us from the North, and comes to the East Coast first.

I was outside with the camera ten minutes before sunrise.




























It was still a little dark, but the horizon was lit up.


















Out in the street the sky was lit... with the most beautiful soft pinks and reds.''





















Clouds in the west caught the colours and glowed.




























A few minutes later the sun had risen and the colours had faded.Rooftops had caught the gold of the first rays of sunlight.  Magic!































Where the shade of the bamboos had fallen the windscreen was not iced.  There was a frost.





































Some yellow cherry guavas were shielded from the frost, but also from the sun.  They are more than a month behind in ripening.


































The oranges are not affected by the frost.  Last year they started to colour up in August!!  This year it was May!!


































The apple tree is losing leaves, but...............














































.... some leaves are still green.





























The tree guava has had leaves nipped by the frost, and although they haven't died like they usually do, they have reddened.































This guava is very frost sensitive.  Why then does it put out new shoots in winter?  It has no sense for the season.
































The "Blue" bamboo has put up many new culms, but they haven't grown leaves yet.  I hope the buds are not damaged by frost.  Certainly in past years they have not been worried.


































Some sensitive frost tender trees, like this black-boy peach, have the good sense to lose their leaves in winter.








































  This plant puts out new flowers, as it is not frost tender and pays no mind to the cold.


















































Winter brings work for the gardener.  This plum tree has to be shorn of its many new branches before the leaves star to sprout in August.































The apricot will lose one of its big branches before August.  It goes so vigorously.  When I first came in 1998, it was just lawn here.  The tree has provided many Apricots.  Now it will provide wood for pipes!



























It might be frost, but Ginger's thick fur protects him while he goes hunting for?????  Who knows, but if there are no mice, insects will have to do.


Hope you enjoyed this look at winter in the southern hemisphere.  Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
