The shortest day in New Zealand has passed, and whatever winter has already dealt to us we have the rest of July and August to look forward too or not if Mother Nature has her way and continues to be unpredictable in her fury. At the very least, we start to notice our days are getting longer.
Moment by moment, they are stretched out.
Funnily enough, they go by for weeks before we become aware of the changes. It is unnoticeable and similar to the subtle changes in our gardens. Most gardeners watch with baited breathe for changes to occur, then that magical moment arrives. Flowers via bulbs and blossoms on trees are beginning to bloom, and so has the days with both being received with much delight. We get to stay out of doors in a twilight lasting for another quarter of a precious hour.
Optimistically we could surmise that Spring is nearly here.
