The Invercargill Eye - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s come a month late, but it’s fi­nally feel­ing like spring is here.

I see blos­soms pop­ping up, daf­fodils sprout­ing in gar­dens and the trees have a less-dead look about them.

I’ve even seen peo­ple sport­ing shorts and T-shirts - but let’s be real, the South­land bloke wears that sort of at­tire on a -6 de­gree morn­ing no wor­ries.

This week to cel­e­brate my ex­cite­ment of the sun com­ing out, I took a visit to the beach and even popped along to the Win­ton Flower Show.

The show was fra­grant, colourful and very spring-like.

They not only had an ar­ray of flo­ral dis­plays, but also art­works and cre­ations by chil­dren.

There are more shows to come, in­clud­ing one in Te Anau on Fri­day and Satur­day.

And if you can’t make it all the way out there, there’s still plenty go­ing on in town.

The In­ver­cargill Spring Fes­ti­val is heat­ing up, prov­ing a treat these school hol­i­days.

With all this go­ing on, it’s not hard to tell spring is my favourite sea­son! RE­PORTER: Re­becca Moore, re­becca.moore@fair­fax­me­dia.co.nz, (03) 3 211 1033, (027) 539 3393.
