Hi neighbours. Our beautiful red pōhutukawa trees (or New Zealand's Christmas trees) are just about in full bloom.
However, not all pōhutukawa trees are red. Have you seen any yellow or white pōhutukawa trees in your local area? We'd love to see your photos. Feel free to leave a photo in the comments or email me the tree's location at email@example.com

Today as I wandered through The Warehouse at Whangaparaoa, now very bare, with stock down to minimum, packing up all around, I thought how sad it was. Our trusted shop with staff who had been there up to 15yrs, is virtually no more. This saddens me, and I am not happy to drive all the way to mill water. To all those staff that have served us so well, I say goodbye, and wish you all the best for your new positions.
