December is the month of celebration. Celebrating Christmas, Summer Solstice, or if you are upside down from us Winter Solstice and then welcoming in the New Year.
It's the most wonderful time of the year - especially for us sun lovers, Summer Solstice marks the beginning of summer which is my time of year, and when New Zealand's Christmas trees bursts into flower.
The very first year our Christmas tree (the Pohutakawa tree) has flowered (it is only 1 year old)
The Christmas lily (lily regale) is blooming and her heady scent is wonderful.
Farm stay Guests...
No photos taken last night - Molly and Bella have arrived they stayed the day inside they did eat their mince so that is a good sign as they were a little home sick to begin with. Today I'll move them into the outdoor run. The brothers don't seem to be home sick at all - Milo who is a fussy eater at home tucks into the mince before his brothers get a look in.
