Today it's Tuesday in New Zealand, one week before it's officially Spring on 1 September. Yippeee!! Another winter down, or almost down. Fingers crossed that it will be good weather from now on.
It's been a lovely day today. In fact, it's been lovely the whole winter. Still cold in the sea at Hataitai Beach, but the air temperature today was 14c which for August is extremely good. J and I swam more of a distance out to sea this afternoon, spending a few minutes longer in the water than we normally would in August. When there's no-one else swimming we try to stick closer to the shoreline where passersby can see us.
My garden's first Spring daffodil bloomed today -
