Photos 1-3 are about culture.
Photo 1 is about April Fools' Day and making jokes and being crazy!
The red flower is the Anzac poppy. You buy this on ANZAC Day and wear it on your front to remember those that have died for NZ in war.
The last picture is at a flea market where you can buy all kinds of craft and other things cheaply.

Photos 4 - 9: Nuts, subtropical fruit and Easter eggs. Nuts are ready and available! Chestnuts, walnuts, and macadamia nuts are healthy and cheapest now.
Feijoas (green) and tamarillos ( tree tomatoes is the old name) and guavas are subtropical fruit which are ripe in April and May.
These grow best in the warmer parts of New Zealand and often in people's back yards.
They are smaller than South African guavas and are red or yellow-green.
Easter eggs are always chocolate in New Zealand and often other shapes of spring like birds, and bunnies.
The shapes of spring are of course a northern hemisphere custom! This year Easter is in April.
10. Mist in the morning
11. Persimmon leaves are changing colour
12. Fog in the valley

Photos 10-12 : Fog, mist and leaves
Fog and mist are often around early in the morning in the valleys.
The leaves on introduced trees are changing colours now from green to orange, red then brown.

Sunsets are still beautiful in March and April but sometimes it is overcast and grey in autumn.
