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.
