FIRST TASTE OF SUMMER

It is late Spring here in Melbourne and after much unsettled weather, unseasonal cold and rain during most of this year's Spring, today we had a wonderful summery day with fine, sunny weather, blue skies and temperature maxima in the low 30˚C range. It felt quite warm, but after the cool wet and grey weather we had been having, everybody who could get out and enjoy the sunshine did!  Here are some of the Spring flowers that I saw during my walk around the neighbourhood.

  1. The bottlebrush is spectacular! I only hope that when summer finally comes (on the 1st December), the hot weather will continue.
