It is pouring with rain here, but the worst of the hail storms have passed over thankfully. We're now getting cold southerly winds and it's not a day for being outdoors!
On a different topic, this morning while searching the net I found this old photograph of a huge cabbage tree:
A large 'cabbage tree' (ti kauka - Cordyline australis) in flower,
with two men under it. Harding, William James, 1826-1899 :Negatives of
Wanganui district. Ref: 1/1-000492-G. Alexander Turnbull Library,
Wellington, New Zealand. http://natlib.govt.nz/records/22315110
Have a great day!
