    Joybel – if possible would you mind keeping us up to date with the fate of the bunnies.I would love to know how they get 0n.
    Are any wild rabbits black? Just wondering if they are someone’s pets that have escaped??
    I, too, hope they find safer ground in the bush nearby.

    Terrific to hear from you, Kai. Your name should be ‘Buzzy Bee Kai’ – you are always so busy. Take care, sweetie.

    Hi Buzzy Bee Kai – wow – you have will power – I could do with some of that.
    Good weather here today as well, was out in the garden for a while & it was a bit too hot for me. Can’t growl tho, as it was a pleasant change from the constant rain we’ve had lately.

    Enjoy your heart healthy bevvie 🙂

    Don’t know how long ago this was taken.

    Hot pink sheep grazing the countryside north of Auckland. The staff at SheepWorld, 65km north of Auckland, regularly colour the sheep with food dye as a gimmick.

    The ozone is far more burning there as shown on statistics..

    love all the pics Val.  the pink sheep started in 2010 by the looks of this web article which is dated 2012, but states that the pink started 2 years before that.

    Can’t say ever went on the auck harbour bridge that many years ago but It looks a lot steeper than nowadays or is that an optical illusion

    Thanks heaps for all the pics and articles, me lovely girls :)))

    Thanks for the article re the pink sheep, Bobbity, what a lot of fun that must have been. Big job, I should imagine, dyeing them one by one, but a real tourist attraction. I would think that even if they can’t remember anything else about NZ now they won’t have forgotten the pink sheep lol.

    We’ve been on the Auck harbour bridge many years ago but not quite that far back & I can’t remember what it was like – dduuuh!!
    What a relief it must be for you, Kai, to have a cool day now & again. At least it’s given you a chance to have a rest & to stop ‘buzzin’ around for a while – Buzzy Bee Kai… lol.
