We stopped on the way to work this morning for a couple of pics under the blossom trees along the Deans Ave edge of Hagley Park. They put on a fine show this time of year, but it wasn't quite the right light to be able to capture the gorgeous pink for you.
Good thing we stopped on the way to work rather than on the way home, as I have now spilt lemon yoghurt over myself. Typical!
We'll probably start cycling next week, weather permitting, and will be able to enjoy these blossoms every day until the spring wind blows them off. I really enjoy cycling, but in NZ we are required by law to wear helmets, and that plays havoc with my hair. Can't be helped, I guess, and besides, I need the extra exercise. Am trying to get myself in shape for the January cruise!
Frock-opshopped. It's a plain old cotton one I take travelling usually.

What a glorious shade of orange, I'm loving the red tights with it and how AWESOME does your hair look?
Please tell me you've got an outrageous cycling helmet with bunny ears and a big bow and if you haven't make one.
LOve Ya!

What a stunning jacket! Bet your eyes lit up with glee when you spotted that.

Ah, I'm so pleased it's spring somewhere in the world. I miss blossom and daffodils.

Dear Helga,

I love the colour of your dress too.
Take care,

Oh I love these colours on you, you should wear them more often. And shut UP about the cruise! No, not really, I'm just jealous!

Looking lovely as always...I like Vix's idea for a helmet. Or you could cover one with fake flowers. Nice to see blossom...the leaves are just starting to turn autumny here.

Ha, when I first saw your title I though it said Busoms and though oh she has done a post all about her fab busom! Sorry my mind is not right today, if you look down you will find it in the gutter :)
