R sapida Little Barrier Island in the flooded stream bank. Hopefully they can handle that.

Rhopalostylis are so photogenic especially with bright light breaking through the canopy and lighting them up.

Not in the garden but in a grow box that I’ve put in a sunny position, my only two Raphia australis. Gotta create a protected sunny spot for these one day.

Your Rhopalostylis are looking awesome Tyrone.

 

The suns actually out again today and no wind. A rare day for this year...  Good excuse to get outside and take on a walking track.

Well after a foggy start it became a sunny day with a top of 23.5C which peaked early and stayed around the same temp until around 3pm. Very spring like. This morning at sun up it was 17.2C with a bit of rain coming through. My plums and apricot trees are starting to flower now which seems a few weeks earlier than last year.

Been chilly here the last few days. Woke up to snow on the surrounding hills today. Plums in the backyard are just about in first blossom, and the chathams and kermadec rhopies are slowly pushing spears. Things should start speeding up again as the days lengthen

Got a lot of cloudy mild weather now. Mins between 6-9C and Max’s from 13-17C. 
Im looking forward to spring.

I came home from work lastnight and found the top third of a dead pine tree had smashed down onto my palms. It snapped the trunk of a Dypsis pembana and crushed my Dypsis canaliculata which I’d had since a one leafer in the 2000s. It was about 2.5m tall and the new leaf was perfect and undamaged from the cold spells. I’d be surprised if it lives. The bud appears to wobble around now. I’m gutted. 
Those pine trees are coming out. I’ve had it.

I’m finding that it’s the part of winter where you are just hanging out for spring. It’s a “are we there yet?” time. I’m longing for some warmth and sunshine, with less rain. I don’t want any more rain for at least a month (will not happen). I haven’t mowed the lawn since the end of May because the mower will just create trenches everywhere because the ground is just slush. Weeds have just taken over and I can’t spray because we can’t get a fine day without some rain or drissle. My irrigation bore has been turned off for months is just oosing water to the surface by itself. Hurry up spring.

25.8C today and it’s still winter. Maybe a record for down here. Just watching the news and the Emperor penguins numbers in Antarctica are crashing due to lack of sea ice this year. It’s going to be a hot summer I reckon.

Well we just had a visit from a unicorn, a below average month, the first since 2017. The good thing is that for my garden at least, it came with consistently cool to cold nights but no one killer frost, I only saw -1.3C min one morning and time below freezing was 2 hours or less.

Did manage above average sun here but growth stopped for the time being with all the cool to cold nights.
