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!
