All it takes is the warmth from the sun to encourage the tulips to open their petals for our viewing pleasure.
It is interesting to watch the heads of the blooms follow the path of the sun as the day progresses.
Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi
May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways
