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.
