It’s officially spring here in New Zealand (meaning lots of gorgeous flowers and lambs, trees in bud and time to get busy in the garden!).
Our last few weeks of winter weather in Wellington were actually really kind to us. We have had mostly mild weather, not much rain and the wind hasn’t been so harsh as to stop us getting out and enjoying ourselves.
We’ve been walking the town-belt tracks that wind through the suburbs of Wellington, with our crazy dog Cocoa.
Enjoying a weekend in Martinborough, the wine growing hub of the Wairarapa (just an hour’s drive from Wellington), that felt more like spring than winter.
The garden has come alive with daffodils and hellebores.
We’ve made the most of windy days, grabbing our kites and heading out the door…
Blowing bubbles in the back garden and celebrating the first signs of spring –
Hanging out at the local playground…
Hiring a ‘crocodile bicycle’ on the Wellington waterfront and taking a ride with friends (whilst catching Pokemon!) –
And enjoying the gorgeous movie adaptation of ‘The BFG’. Loved it sooooo much!
And finally, enjoying beautiful spaces to do a bit of outdoor yoga. Hooray!
It’s been a really good winter, but we’ve missed the long days and sunny evenings. It will be so great to see the clocks shift forward soon, so we can have more ‘play time’ in the evenings.
Linking up with the wonderful Country Kids, where wonderful bloggers share their outdoor adventures with their children …
