Winter at Fyffe Lodge
Like everyone else throughout New Zealand at this time of the year we have heads down and bottoms up with pruning and trimming. With some 60 roses on site it takes us a while not to mention the grape vine and the stone fruit trees. Stringing up the orchids which are about to flower and preparing the ground for our summer vegetables.
(old saying…. To live off the Garden you almost have to live in the garden)
Some of the early peonies are up and masses of tulips so spring is going to look sensational with such colour and it is not so far away… Kaikoura has had quite a wet winter and most probably like the rest of New Zealand…Lots of moss about which we are dealing with and grass growing where it has never grown before..
And just around the corner on the 19th September…..
Don’t forget the Kaikoura Hop this year is about to kick off . We’re expecting over 800 car entries. A petrol heads paradise, followed by a great Dance.
And then soon after on October 4th, 2014
Kaikoura Seafest Lots of great times to be had and rooms about the town are starting to fill up fast.
