Snapped today from the Cambridge Terrace side of the river not far from Fitzgerald Avenue. The willow still has some leaves (just), probably due to the mild May weather we experienced. The first week of June is proving to be lovely as well – though I’m not sure it’s going to last as Friday’s weather forecast looks bad. It won’t be long before there are no leaves on any of the deciduous trees and their will be snow visible on the Southern Alps. I once heard that the willows around Hagley Park are just 6 weeks without leaves. I’m already looking forward to Spring in Christchurch – and winter hasn’t really even started!
