You know you're in New Zealand when ...

... the Rugby World Cup being 17 days away is more important news than the overthrow of Gadhafi in Libya.

Also when most native flowers are small and green and unisexual.  Here are male (left) and female flowers of Griselinia littoralis, from separate trees in the Victoria University of Wellington grounds.

These are not to scale.  Male flowers are about 5mm diameter; females about 3mm diameter.
