Harbinger of Spring is the sight of daffodils, freesias, birds building nests, (once again the window box outside our sons bedroom makes a temporary home for a little family.)
September is officially the start of Spring here in New Zealand, but you would not think so as today it is cold and wet.
Signs of spring are in the air, and out walking I picked a bunch of freesias that were growing on the roadside. The intoxicating smell on the kitchen windowsill is gorgeous and even doing jobs like washing the dishes, seems more pleasant.
These Gucci shoes were displayed in the window of the Fabric shop that I went into last week.
They were worn by Lady Gaga during the final show of the Monster Ball tour in Mexico City.
Autographed by her, they were put up for auction for a fund raising telethon to help Christchurch after the earthquake.
Lady Gaga gave strict instructions to the Rise up Charity team for Christchurch "Make sure they raise heaps of money and go to someone fabulous"
Ps. Two years ago today, 4th September was when the first earthquake struck Christchurch, and still there are difficult times for so many people living there. Rebuilding and getting back to normality is slowly happening and we hope that life can be better for the people of Christchurch.
I wish you a wonderful new week
