March and April are my favourite months here in the South Island of New Zealand. The mornings are cool and the days are bright and sunny. Well, generally bright and sunny. This year though the weather has been a bit unusual. We’ve had a fair bit of rain and cloudy days. Normally, March and April are gorgeous and you get some pretty warm days.

And what I really like is the changing colours of the landscape. The trees in Christchurch are stunning. Autumnal colours are everywhere: bright golds; cherry reds; russets; lime greens; sunny yellows.

On our property, we have some golden elms and Japanese maples that are starting to display their beautiful colours. So for today’s post I bring you the colours of Autumn in Oxford, New Zealand.
