Springtime in New Zealand drives me a bit nuts. So much wind, so much blustery smacking of breezes and rain against your face. The sun is a bit of a stranger too, with so much cloud skudding from horizon to horizon that we long for weather that's settled and hot. We know it's coming, but just now midsummer seems a long way off.
But I cheered myself up the other day by taking out my camera on a yellow binge. Nothing like yellow's sunniness to add a dose of cheer to your life. And there's miles of it out there. Marigold, lemon, buttercup, saffron, egg yolk, mustard, cream. So many happy colors. You just need to notice.
