Musings of a dyer and fiber artist from Lord of the Rings and Narnia country, the South Island of New Zealand.
I grew up in Warkworth on the "Kowhai Coast" where the kowhai is the town emblem. There's nothing quite a magical as a patch of native bush with kowhais in bloom and tui bird song...
The flowers are very unusual. What amazes me from here in Canada is how short the winter is over there. We look forward to 6 months or more of snow and sub zero temps. Good thing I don't mind the cold!
We have a temperate climate here, with 4 quite distict seasons. We'll still have some cold weather, and there's usually an October storm that brings snow to the high country.
