The seasons in the Northern Hemisphere are the opposite of those in the Southern Hemisphere; while the Northern Hemisphere is enjoying the cool dry autumn, Spring flowers have just began to blossom in New Zealand in the Southern Hemisphere. And for me, the most anticipating flowers would be those of the cherry trees. There are three popular places in Auckland where you can see cherry blossom – the Auckland Domain in the city centre, the Cornwall Park in Green Lane and the Botanic Garden in Manurewa; but of course, cherry blossoms are not only found in parks, they are also found in some residential areas. Today when I was driving from Epsom to Hillsborough on Pah Road, I found about twenty magnificent cherry trees growing along the Torrance Street. These are mature Yoshino cherries estimated to be about thirty year-old. If you are in the area, please do not forget to stop and enjoy this beautiful scene.
