Jumping for joy; the boy-child on holiday in the UK. Photo: Tony Gray, 2006

It’s autumn here in New Zealand and we definitely seem to have reached the end of the golden weather.

The boy-child has been off on Planet Teenager for the past few days — managing to be verbally uncommunicative whilst stomping around in a manner that just screams “not happy.”

It probably won’t last; my funny, loving son should soon emerge from whatever funk he’s in and remind me why I’m so happy to be his mother. In the meantime, I’m reminding myself of the good old days — before he grew into a heavy-footed giant and he always seemed to have a spring in his step.

This post was written for the Daily Post Photo Challenge. Here are some other “spring” posts I’ve enjoyed:

    • Thanks. I’m more an autumn person I think. I love the big skies and crisp morning we’ve been having lately. 🙂

      • I love the way we are all so different and get our energies from different sources. Most of my friends are “spring” people and I think they do have a different energy to me. It’s a useful reminder of how connected we are to this Earth. 🙂

    • Thank you; I really treasure images of a sunny past when we’re going through a very cloudy present. But I remember being like that at his age, so I’m sure it will pass.

  1. Su, he’ll be back. 🙂 In the meantime, these are perfect, lovely photos of the exuberance of spring. I’m feeling it now, too, finally.

    Hope to see you when we come to New Zealand late 2015. It would be lovely to meet. If you have any travel suggestions, places to see (I know there are zillions) or anything else, I’m already in the planning stages so email me any time at TeaNatious@gmail.com.

    • Thanks Janet. Am looking forward to our meet-up in New Zealand. I’ll email you (probably with lots of questions about what sort of stuff you like, etc), and am happy to help with any planning/organising I can. 🙂
