I spotted this explosion of colour over our back fence today and was captivated by the mix of golden yellow and burnt orange splashed against the backdrop of bright green.
It's April 1st and we in New Zealand are nearly half way through Autumn already. While the Northern Hemisphere is encouraged by daffodils, bluebells, crocuses, blossom and crisp green leaf buds, with the promise of lilacs, roses and lush green foliage on the trees to come, we here in the Southern Hemisphere are seeing our gardens wither and die down as they get ready for the cold months of Winter ahead. Although the days are still mostly warm, the nights are starting to cool rapidly and they start me thinking about hot soups, woollen jumpers, thick socks and our winter duvet. As much as I don't like to be cold, I do like lots of things about Winter especially those things that make you feel cozy. So wherever you are in the world enjoy the season your in for what it brings to your day.xx
