spring (kowhai)

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz!

Not that it doesn't rise all year round! Today is the equinox and therefore the first day of spring according to some, including Google--and look, they acknowledged it with posies! They know we exist; yay! (Have the northerners got autumn leaves?) Actually we say here that spring starts at the first of the month, but there's been some talk about going by the solstices and equinoxes instead because summer seems only to start around Christmas.

Anyway, to celebrate, here are some pictures of spring flowers taken in various places last week.
