Raining in January in Hawkes Bay's summer is something unusual. But it did..... for three days. So I went out with my trusty camera.
This is the Ngaruroro. It is usually pretty low. Its not now.
It is full.. of dirty water.
The Chesterhope Bridge is not in any danger, and has not ever been. I have seen the distance between water and bridge half the amount now showing..... in the seventies... in winter.
There is, however, enough water to cover the grafiti.
Upstream there is plenty more water on its way.
Not the time and place to cross the river.
A little riverside weed is enjoying the rain.
There are plenty of other riverside weeds also having a good time.
Daisies are classed as weeds. They are very interesting plants.
I fotografed this plant when visiting my sisters place in Te Puke. This weed does better up there.
This plant is so modest with its flowers.
Just remember that all garden flowers were once weeds and wild.... as these plants are.
