Every spring I fall in love with Canberra all over again. After the biting cold of a perfect Canberra winter - which I enjoy until the last month or so - it's uplifting to see the naked trees become leafy and green again, and to watch the cherry blossoms bloom and the days become lighter and longer. When daylight saving begins, I start making promises to myself to ride my bike to work every day.
