TO THE EDITOK. Sir,—Please accept this branch of kowhai in full blossom. You will see that the flowering had commenced some three or four weeks ago. A party visiting at Otago Heads today was sceptical on this point till one of the pilot-boatmen went up into the bush on the hillside above the landing beach and brought down the branch I send you. Speaking for self, I am pleased at this confirmation of my opinion, based on thirty years' experience—that this climate of ours is second to none in New Zealand. Now, reader, where is your Little Barrier now ? lam, etc., Sophoka. Dunedin, August 30. [The branch is in full bloom, and can be seen in the window of Mr W. Bull's shop, under the Grand Hotel.—Ed. E.S.]
