So you know what it's like when you're at the end of winter and you've had enough of dreary wet damp days? yep me too! Normally I love winter, it's a great time to get cosy, snuggle up and watch winter sports on tv. Now I'm sort of over it. These are some of the things I'm looking foward to for Spring and Summer...flowers - lots of them! Roses, above were in bouquets for sale at Matakana Markets.
Hydrangeas - above - photo captured in a friend's garden. These ones are a green/yellow but most varieties we get here are blue or pink.
Red Pohutukawa flowers - NZ's Christmas tree - these come out every summer around November/December. They grow mostly around beaches and sandy areas - perfect coastal plants.
Purple Gazania daisies growing all over the sand at some of the local beaches. These ones love life by the surf! While I"m at it a good friend of mine Jen has started up a blog called Napier Daily Photo - she also lives in NZ but a different part, further down south in a lovely vintage art deco city so do try to check her out :-)
What sort of things are you looking forward to in your coming seasons?
