In New Zealand 1 March is the “unofficial” start of autumn, although the equinox is really when autumn begins. However the days are getting shorter (sunrise is around 7.10am and sunset 8.10pm). We are having some lovely days though and it got to 28 degrees yesterday. I went to a 6pm yoga session, and because it was just beside the beach, I went for a quick walk down to the sea straight after. This photo was taken around 7.35pm last night and it was still 24 degrees.
