The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME - – Richard

Welcome to the warm. Tho’ spring of course round these here parts is apt to be a mixed bag of sun, wind, cloud and wet as the sea­son lurches un­cer­tainly and un­cer­e­mo­ni­ously to­wards sum­mer.

Sum­mer of course is a rel­a­tive term. I re­mem­ber be­ing told that Manawatu only had two sea­sons, win­ter and sprautumn.

Still, a beau­ti­ful spring day is a beau­ti­ful spring day and no one needs to be re­minded about get­ting out and seiz­ing the mo­ment while it lasts.

The sea­son is of­fi­cially un­der way fol­low­ing the Wed­nes­day 23 spring equinox.

It all comes to­gether on the week­end of Septem­ber 26 – 27.

The school hol­i­days will be un­der­way, it’s the IPC In­ter­na­tional Spring Fes­ti­val, and day­light sav­ing clicks in early that Sun­day morn­ing.

That’s the thing about spring – a sea­son of buoy­ant hope and sum­mery ex­pec­ta­tion.
