Only one more month of heat and humidity to go, before the weather in Sydney starts to mellow. Counting the days!
I've never understood why we persist with irrelevant northern hemisphere season names in Australia. The climates across our huge country are diverse and do not translate to consistent naming of seasons. Aboriginal Australians have much more complex descriptions of seasons here, as they relate to the geographical area and what occurs on the land at each time of the year. It's all about observing what goes on around you.
The flowers in my photo are of my crepe myrtle. We've had a cloudy few months, and my tree first flowered in early December, which was very early. I thought that meant it was over for the season but no! It has been in full bloom again for the past few weeks and the neighbourhood has been enjoying the gorgeous pinkness of the petals. Lovely.
