It's that time of year again.


Something we missed for the many years we spent in the tropics. The fruit trees are all in blossom and the pigeons are checking out whether the tender leaf buds are ready to eat.

 We haven't seen many honeybees yet. Hopefully they'll turn up to help turn these pretty blossoms into juicy plums.
 I've found that a low-altitude sun brings out the colours on many of our native birds, but, strangely, the tui's colours seem to be stronger in overcast conditions.
