Spring is in the air

By Thumper - 8 September 2008 23

I don’t know about the rest you little Rioters, but yesterday had a definite feel of spring.

I love spring, and canberra is one of the best places in the world to experience this season.

Feel free to add superlatives about spring in the capital.

What’s Your opinion?

I love spring. Everything is awakening from a long winters slumber and about to burst into joyous life.

Or maybe it’s just because it’s warming up 🙂

When I was a child spring was my favourite season. As a teenager I loved summer. These days I find Autumn the most wonderful time. Maybe due to climate change it seems warmer now than when I was growing up here.

I still do love spring though. For me the difference between spring and autumn is like sunrise and sunset. How do you choose?

I also love the pink and white blossoms, the tender green juiciness of the budding leaves, the vivid hues of Floriade and the crispness of the sunshine. Spring is celebration, hope, and anticipation – the sense that something really good is just on the verge of happening.

As someone who suffers from hayfever, i do not look upon Spring with the joy that you all share.

Between GCC ‘work’ and the mega-tender, only had one day down the mountains on my board.
Am NOT ready for an end to winter yet…
Besides, it hasn’t even been cold yet.

And the mock cherries around the place are starting to bloom..

The wattle explosion on Tuggy Parkway was very pretty when I headed up to Gungahlin on the weekend.

I posted two pictures of the spring ‘explosion’ that is currently occurring in our garden on my blog: Spring iz Sprung.

I have a bit of a thing for cherry blossoms, and the ones in my garden are just spectacular right now!

Corker of a day – spent it in the sun looking for abandoned warehouses in Yass to fly RC planes and helicopters – and a bit of trainspotting to boot.

PS if anyone knows any local abandoned warehouses hook me up 🙂

Even th emorning sun is warmer – when I stepped out this morning at around 0830 (Late one for me :P) I could feel the immediate warmnth in the sun.

Driving to a mates in duffy from Ngunnawal Mrs Danman and I could smell a few BBQ’s in prgress and thought yeah – its that season again at last.

I love the explosion of blossoms- so pretty!

simbo 9:34 am 08 Sep 08

Alas, I can’t enjoy it as I’m having the last-five-minutes-of-winter flu – so … yay you!

Pandy 8:59 am 08 Sep 08
