Spring is showing itself here more dramatically with each passing day. I went down to the reserve near our local school and kindergarten today where there are thousands of daffodils planted. They are planted in the grass beneath a stand of flowering cherry trees.
I blogged about the cherry trees here and mentioned that this reserve is in honour of Porirua’s sister city relationship with Nishio city in Japan.
The wind was gusty so the daffodils were dancing and nodding. The trees above them are budding but have to yet to flower.
A variety of daffodil bulbs have been planted giving a varied show.
Across from the reserve was a weeping willow tree just putting out its first soft, tender, pretty green leaves in a hazy display.
A flowering fruit tree was bursting with blossom.
And further down the walkway was a small flowering tree with these delicate white blossoms showing.
