While the world I grew up in is happily celebrating spring right now, I’m here down under falling in love with Fall instead! You never hear of a New Zealand Fall, so I didn’t really consider it too much until I got to Nelson a few weeks ago and have been very pleasantly surprised ever since.

The trees here are so tall, and the leaves glow so yellow when the sun shines through:

I love walking along the river here, seeing all the colors right in front of me:

Sometimes I sit on a bench and just look up for a while!

I love the deep reds and oranges:

But even the greens are pretty in contrast:

Greens turning yellow:

So many leaves falling:

Littering the boring sidewalks with such beauty!

I love fall in New Zealand.
