Autumn in the southern hemisphere

I'd only ever seen New Zealand in raging summer mode, so I was reluctant to believe it was capable of anything else. But I'm giving in, autumn is coming, and I like it.

In England, autumn was a slippery slope straight into a dark and cold winter, so it made me apprehensive. But this year I'm defying odds, and my kiwi autumn is headed... to another summer! Here's to a summer in Seattle on the horizon, and summers are Seattle's best kept secret.

So as you all in the northern hemisphere enjoy the early signs of spring and thaw from a long winter, I'm going to go ahead and tuck into this delicious autumn. I love how in addition to leaves turning red here, so do the berries on palm trees. That made my week.

Hope everyone has a good weekend. I'm off to a craft fair in Grey Lynn on Sunday called Kraft Bomb, and with a name like that, I'm sure it going to be sweet.

I LOVE Seattle in the Summer!!! SPokane is pretty amazing too!! ;)

I am uber jelly that you will be there. Walk around Green Lake for me, and stop into some shops and restaurants in Freemont!

Hey, wow! I didn't know you guys were trekking the globe right now. Well if you guys want a place to stay in Duluth, MN even for a weekend, you know there is a place for you. Good luck, I'm praying for you guys.

Autumn seems to be an amazing season no matter where you live (well, except maybe southern California...not much changes ;)

I tried to send you an email with my new blog url but I think I have an old email address.

I'm back blogging:

You are wonderful, btw!

Heather, I will definitely walk around Green Lake and pour out a Zoka's latte for you too.

Mike, we are trekking indeed. I've never been to the big MN but know who to call if we're in town.

Jane, so glad to see you're back blogging again, I can't wait to check it out!

Also, autumn here doesn't stop me from going to the beach and swimming in the sea like I did today, I do feel like a fraud claiming to be hunkering down for the winter. But I'm also fine with this. :)
