Yep, yesterday in the Manawatu was a cracker - what a gorgeous lawn you have! Today however, I've got my merino jersey back on and the wind is up as well! Roll on the weekend... I think it's supposed to be good.

Gosh so windy! It's really scary - around my place we have a lot of huuuuge Elm trees. In this wind it really freaks me out, about branches falling, or even trees.

Once a stupidly parked Mitsubishi Evo 6 (new i might add) was totalled by a falling elm tree... Was parked right beneath it, then this huge almighty tree fell straight down (towards the house too! missed it by about 2m)

Bloody wind!

We don't have mowed lawns- just let the ewe lambs in every few weeks and they keep it down.... Can't wait to see your garden in March!

[FONT=Arial Mäori]Awesome lawn! I take pride in my 'front' lawns but anything else is mowed by the sheep.

Its been an average summer in Martinborough. It seems like we are still in October / November. Hot and still one day, howling with wind for the next 2 and then cold for a day or two. I have lit the fire at least 6 times this month. Its great because it heats my water and I have an endless supply of fire wood. But hey, ITS JANUARY FFS
