Lurking about the corner of Noel and Shakespeare for the past three or four days. It has just the one character on its address panel ‘2’. A bit of the travelling gnomes. If you know whose it is text or email me so it can be returned.
Why would there be two reasonably large Christmas trees sitting on the greenbelt beside the old Leamington Factory on the corner of Carlyle Street, Rotoorangi Road and Lamb Street in June?

10:00AM 25 June 2011: Off to a bit of a rocky start – when embedding your Google Calendar be sure to set the time zone before cutting and pasting the embed code – in that code is
ctz=UTC; for NZST it should read
ctz=UTC=12 (you can modify this manually or recapture the code and paste again – you needed to know that didn’t you :).
Update 10:45 25 June 2011: Better still
ctz=Pacific/Auckland which should take care of daylight saving I assume.
A yearly occurrence with Ag. Fieldays week traffic flowing through and about our town. Mystery Creek is 14 kilometres to the west. Our bridges are the confluence of north south, east west traffic traversing the Waikato River. It’s not all that bad, seems it has been worse in the past, some hold ups morning and night but that’s about it. Town is always pretty quite during Fieldays week.

Alas Mark found the first instance of camellia petal blight today – in a japonica. It seems to appear earlier every year. We have never seen it in sasanquas and I was a little surprised this week to hear of claims that in warmer climates, sasanqua camellias are susceptible. We would really like to hear confirmation from anybody who has actually seen it in sasanquas (as opposed to having heard reports of it). We had thought that these Japanese camellias were resistant. Blight has certainly never shown in ours and we are reasonably eagle-eyed on the matter.
