Three seasons – one day!

While I’m on about weather – there’s a well-known New Zealand truism that states ‘always be prepared to experience four seasons in one day’. Well, I’ve just recorded what looks to me like three seasons in about 10 minutes in my garden.

The little shoots peeping out from under the monstera look decidedly spring like –

The green citrus fruits signal autumn –

The bare peach tree is beginning to look wintry –

And for those of us more used to living in the northern hemisphere, don’t these red berries just ooze Christmas?

... or maybe I’m just having a silly Sunday!

Hello, Michele sent me to say that I have to agree - you've got some season changes going on in one day! Those limes (am I right?) look wonderful!!!

Loved your photos...

Hello sara .... thanks for liking hello sara,
My photos! I've never been much interested in photography .. but with my blog and things ... I think I'm slowly improving ....

And they're not limes .. we call them ugli fruit .... but I'm not sure that that's correct. All I can tell you is, they taste good ... they grow quite large and have a very thich skin.
