Melbourne's climate is a temperate Mediterranean-type with relatively warm, wet winters and dry, warm to hot summers. With the ozone layer hole in Antarctica relatively close to us, we have much UV radiation and as a consequence bright blue skies (we use a lot of sunscreen!). The mild climate means that we have a huge range of both exotic and native plants in our gardens. Here is an introduced species, a flowering plum that is often planted in Melbourne streets as an ornamental tree.
