Clocks go forward one hour on Sunday morning
Long enchanted evenings are on their way, with daylight saving about to extend the heady days of impending summer.
Clocks go forward one hour on Sunday morning, largely due to the efforts of a Wellington postal clerk.
Entomologist George Vernon Hudson valued after-hours daylight for his hobby.
In 1895 he presented a paper advocating seasonal time adjustment, which was initially ridiculed, but eventually adopted as daylight saving.
The gentleman naturalist did all his fieldwork in a three-piece suit, complete with watch-chain.
Beneath his suit, Hudson wore head-to-toe pink woollen underwear.
