Spring at Whanarua

After a rough winter the East Coast has luxuriated in several weeks of fine sunny weather. Good for harvesting nuts. Just about all of the nuts are now in the drying bins. This year’s flowering is prodigious. The scent, the sound of bees and the millions of flowers hanging out of the trees in curtains of pink or white are quite overwhelming.
