For inhabitants of a land which is seldom subject to any real extremes of weather, we New Zealanders are oddly obsessed with it. Perhaps is part of our British colonial legacy — weather provides a topic of conversation that permits polite interaction without the risk of straying into contentious territories.
Of my home city, Auckland, it is said that we often experience “four seasons in a day.” Today has been one of those days; warm and humid, grey and windy, cold, bursts of sunshine. Not a day for venturing far without a raincoat and strong hair-clips to hold wayward fringes in place.
I’ve chosen not to venture anywhere much at all. This morning I wandered around the garden, noting how much the lawn has grown and weeds have invaded. I toyed with the idea of clearing some overgrown ferns on the boundary, but decided to photograph them instead, before retreating back indoors.
