Funny fact: In most parts of the world, spring and fall start on the 21st or 22nd of the month, when the sun is right above the equator. Similarly, winter and summer start at the winter and summer solstice, respectively. Not in New Zealand. Here, people take the first day of March, June, September and December as the official start of the new season.
Regardless whether spring began on the first of September or tomorrow, we have already enjoyed several warm and sunny days. And I can tell you, a spring morning in Hamilton is a delight, especially when it coincides with the weekend, such as 10 days ago.
After all, spring comes when it is ready. And the blossoms, flowers, birds and sun all exclaim they are, indeed, ready!
