Scenes from around this area of the Waikato today, including Te Koutu lake in Cambridge. The sun warm and the tuis in the Kowhai tree, almond blossom and a freshly ploughed paddock - convincing me that Spring is here at last.
The small painting below was inspired by the amazing displays of blossom around this area, in gardens, lining the roads, in orchards and parks.
