Let’s all cel­e­brate spring


Win­ter is of­fi­cially gone and spring is here.

Here’s our pick of five of the best ways to cel­e­brate the ar­rival of spring.

1. Fu­ri­ously de­bate when spring ac­tu­ally is

It’s a de­bate that hap­pens ev­ery year and ev­ery­body has at least one friend to in­cite at bar­be­cues. In New Zealand we cel­e­brate the start of spring on Septem­ber 1 but many coun­tries go with the spring equinox.

2. Eat ten­der, juicy bar­be­cued spring lamb

Auck­land has a plethora of stun­ning spots to cook-up-a-storm that aren’t yet crowds.

3. Daf­fodils

Corn­wall Park has a fra­grant boule­vard of daf­fodils sprout­ing. There’s also plenty of other places to find these cheer­ful flow­ers.

4. Fresh As­para­gus

As­para­gus fans are so cru­elly treated by win­ter ei­ther suc­cumb­ing to limp, pale canned as­para­gus or dread­fully priced im­ported ‘fresh’ as­para­gus.

5. Break­ing out the shorts and jan­dals

We Ki­wis boast a cheer­ful de­nial about liv­ing in a tem­per­ate coun­try, so why not slap on the jan­dals and shorts months shy of Auck­land’s sum­mer proper? be­sieged by sum­mer

Spring lambs shouldn’t be too far away.
