You know it's spring...


This strange warm sensation comes from a weirdly blue sky.

The temperature suddenly jumps five degrees and you don't think it's just in your head.

The Rhododendrons are starting to announce their arrival with bursts of colour.

You get to shuffle through yellow carpets of Kowhai flowers.

You get to laugh at groups of our native wood pigeon, Kereru, playing tag across the roof tops.

The cat changes her sleeping position from the winter retreat of the kid's bed, to the office.

You go to try on a few articles of summer clothing and say, oops, (or words to that effect.)
