I spotted this sign in early October when we had some unseasonal snow storms in the hills and - much like people going to look at the approach of tsunami - it seems a lot of Manawatu-ites scrambled into the hills to get a look at the snow, prompting one farmer to try to deter them, thus:

How handy to be able to pick up an Azalea with your pie and newspaper. I know I often have a burning urge for an new Azalea bush of an evening. Random is not the word + there were no Azaleas to be seen in the shop. . Maybe they keep them under the counter *nod nod wink wink*.
Finally, I spotted this sign on the community notice board of a New World Supermarket:
Personally, I hate shorts - but the tone of this notice is so upbeat I almost rang him up! Almost.
