Springtime.

One thing I am definitely going to miss about going to New Zealand is Spring. I am going straight from winter to autumn, I know, bad planning really, but when I do finally get to New Zealand spring I am hoping it will be worth the wait, and warmer than over here! I do love spring though, new growth, slowly sprouting, peeking above the soil, looking to see if the last signs of Winter have gone (bit far? maybe, but it is such an amazing season!). I was lucky enough to see a few first signs of the seasons before I leave though; such bright cheerful colours, crazy shapes and beautiful flowers!

  1. Fantastic colours and blue skies!
    I'm sure even autumn will be totally worth seeing in New Zealand!

    1. Thank you Polly! Yes, I am looking forward to all the Autumn colours, it's just weird to get my head around having two autumns and two winters without a summer in between, but at least I know I will be getting a warm summer at the end of it, rather than in the UK where sometimes we only end up having a handful of warm days!

    1. Ahh, yes, I knew it had a name Denise, just couldn't remember what it was! I'm terrible with plant names, but they are so beautiful!
