Thinking ahead to spring, and some warmer, if not drier weather.

A couple of years ago we visited Havelock North in Hawkes Bay. The pretty town centre was planted with dozens of trees, all in blossom.

Bing Dawe’s sculpture is one of three in the town, which draw attention to the loss of wetlands and consequently the life that depends on it.
