I Love the Native New Zealand Kowhai

We have a small grove of kowhai trees which we planted about 5 years ago. They are exposed to the westerly wind and one of them had stunted growth because it was nibbled by the hares. They are taller than me now and this year they will all be in flower. The kowhai tree has fern-like leaves and beautiful drooping yellow flowers. Spring is on it's way and there are lots of tiny buds!!
