Beautiful Spring


Spring is here and it’s brought a rainstorm of blossoms with it. I’m loving the delicate colours and wild scents of this season.

As I was taking a stroll through the park a certain tree caught my eye. It was clear that I wasn’t alone in this – the tree was something of a magnet for spectators, tourists and selfie-snappers.


The blossoms remind me of cherry or plum blossoms, but I wasn’t aware that these grew in New Zealand. I’ve never seen cherries or plums before. But come to think of it, I’ve never seen these particular trees around before either.

Do you know what these beautiful spring trees are?
