I had to race back for my phone yesterday - been gone two minutes and Jess had made herself at home...
If we leave them both at home, this is the usual view...
The daffodils and early blossom are out and this week I noticed the first green fuzz on the trees too. I know we only get the privilege of seeing so many springs in one lifetime, and as the hourglass is well past halfway now, I intend to appreciate every one I have left.
Spring is officially here on Sunday, along with Father's Day and my parents Wedding Anniversary. Lots to celebrate.
Thinking of daffodils - It is Daffodil Day - do read Jaz's post on this.
Driving to work is not a particularly scenic trip - mainly road works and cranes, which pretty much sums up Eastern Christchurch these days. Here are some of the city demolitions I have driven past in the last two weeks - the tall place in Hereford St opposite the Joe's Garage site and the Canterbury Brewery. All gone now.
To be fair, there are also a lot of buildings going up but the city still looks incredibly empty.
BeckerFraser photos took this recently.

It does lift the spirits to sit in the sun. Simple pleasures. Poppy always enjoys it too.
Have a great weekend :)
