PAG-ASA SA PAGBABAGO NG PANAHON
Stretch out as the trails, golf courses and gardens defrost and bloom. Fresh clean air, warm daytime temperatures, cool evenings and a time when the skiing is often at its best. Restaurant tables creep on to the sidewalks and the beaches fill with people enjoying warm late afternoon sunshine. Sit in a café and people watch, browse the markets and shops, hike the hillside trails, take in the new colours and scents, reawaken adrenaline with adventure. Plan to dress in layers for rapid weather changes as equinox winds and sudden, quick showers regularly refresh the landscape and air between hot sunny periods.
SpringSpring – officially 1 September to 30 November. Weather is unpredictable, sublime one moment, spring showers the next. Temperature range is C8 degrees to C15 degrees.
A great time to take a garden tour. You’ll find an astonishing range of bulbs, annuals and perennials creating colourful displays as a prelude to the more showy blooms of summer.
The high alpine tracks are just open. Early in the season is a relaxed and unhurried time to walk in the mountains. In Central Otago, the hills are mauve with flowering herbs, particularly wild thyme – a great time to wander the vast and scented landscape.
The low lying river fishing season opens on October 1. The alpine river fishing season opens on November 2. Low lying rivers are generally described as those flowing out of the great lakes, the alpine are those flowing in. Buy a fishing license (the price is nominal) from any sports shop in Te Anau, Cromwell, Alexandra, Wanaka or Queenstown.

Pagkatapos ng Tag-lamig (Winter) unti-unti na namang bumabalik ang sikat at init ng Haring Araw kasalitan ang Ulang nagmumula sa kalangitan na siyang dumidilig at bumuhay sa kanyang kapaligiran. Muli na namang nagkakadahon ang mga ibang puno na dati akala mo ay wala ng buhay ang mga halaman ay muli na namang namulaklak at ang kapaligiran ay nagkakamayroon na naman ng ibat ibang kulay at halimuyak. Tag-sibol (Spring) na muli nagbabadya ng muling pagbabalik ng buhay ng sanlibutan. Pagkatapos ng mahabang pagluluksa panahon na upang muling magbalik ang saya sapagkat hatid ng ng bagong panahon ang bagong pag-asa sa mga taong umaasang at nanalig na ang buhay pagkatapos ng Taglagas (Autumn) at Taglamig may dadating na panahon ng Tag-sibol at Tag-init (Summer). Sana hindi sila mabigo sa kanilang mga inaasam sa pagbabago ng kanilang kapaligiran.
