the dog is waiting....

Izzy has been nagging The Pirate with her eyes for half an hour.......and now they are off for a walk to pick up windfall apples and feed them to  the local Kune Kune pig .  Izzy and her are great friends!

The apple harvest is good here this year, the crab apple trees in the park by Virginia lake are laden down.






The sun is still hot in the day, but there is a chill in the air and a nice cool breeze at night.

The snow in Scotland made the NZ news this morning.   The Isle of Arran has been hit particularly hard, with telegraph poles snapped like matchsticks, so no power, and farmhouses disappearing under snowdrifts.

The house where the Pirate used to live has been snowed in for days, the nearby village is passable but not good.

We'll be getting his generator sorted for next year!!

The snow has caught out the uk again, despite us all knowing that it was on the way - the wind is bitingly cold and causing huge spindrift.

I have heard about this too - but there is no snow on this Isle! Hope you are well - sounds like it xxx

Still quite pleasant here, but we had a terrific hail-storm in the night. The weather has become all important.
