#4023 Simple news

I’m used to seasons that start on June, September, December and March on the 21st, at least officially. But here in New Zealand, we like to simplify things (I hope my only New Zealand follower will agree) and we decree the beginning of each season at the beginning of the month. It suits me perfectly for spring (first September), summer (first December), fall (first of March), I would only like winter to start on June 21 and end on August 31, which seems pretty reasonable to me.

The Botanical Garden has gone back to the ducks, ever since the flooding of the past few days, when 300mm of rain (in four days, instead of the usual 80mm) caused landslides, road closures, extensive damage to an important  number of houses,  as well as the evacuation of many residents. The only ones not complaining about the situation seem to be the ducks, who are taking full advantage of their garden.
