The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME - Richard Mays

There is al­ways such a suc­cinct sense of re­lief when day­light sav­ing kicks in. It means spring has re­ally ar­rived, and another cold, wet sea­son has been sur­vived.

OK, there may be the nag­ging feel­ing, es­pe­cially among par­ents and other hard-work­ing folk, that we’re down an hour of pre­cious rest – And Dr Libby has a so­lu­tion for the rest is­sue – she’s in town on Mon­day with her Why Are You So Tired? seminar.

But apart from that, we’re in the pink.

The blos­som has been es­pe­cially boun­ti­ful this year, and calm con­di­tions means much of it has stayed put on the branches.

IPC was a pic­ture for the an­nual In­ter­na­tional Spring Fes­ti­val, Col­man Pl is ablaze – it does won­ders for any­one’s sense of per­sonal welll be­ing.

Now all the Tur­bos have to do is beat Taranaki on Satur­day to com­plete the pic­ture.
