10 Mar Catching a headwind
I’m writing this as tension mounts around the duelling boats fighting it out on the harbour under heavy Auckland skies. Palpable tension is in the air, many visitors have come into Auckland from around the country to share in the excitement, finally it feels like a vibrant city again! Let’s hope we can sustain the heady feeling of optimism and the pleasure of being together again.
In parallel, the days are shortening and the nearness of Easter tells us that the seasons are changing. The stunning summer hydrangea blooms are changing their appearance, transforming themselves into acid greens tinged with burgundy. Ready to dry and make the perfect long lasting arrangements. Get them while you can! And of course we’ll have plenty of Easter goodies to make your celebration special. Look out for specialty items in our chocolate range, and stay tuned for tulips from Scarecrow Flowers. If you’re planning a long weekend get-together and would like to know more just give us a call to find out how we can help.
‘Tis the season also to look forward to upcoming festivals! The first off the rank will be the 16th International Doc Edge Film Festival, running through June (and into July!) and we are always proud to be associated with this. Check out their website to find out more. Another great reason to come into the city!
Many new products and features are coming to Scarecrow, including a great new website on its way. Do stay in touch with us, we really appreciate your support.
See you soon!
