Is this the last burst of wet and windy weather forcing it's way into our lives?
Small hints of summer were given to us last week and make us anxious for the warmth and promise of days in the garden, eating outdoors and preparing the swimming pool.
We have a long weekend here in South Australia and it's often a time for a break away from the hum drum. But it's going to rain most of the time… so the gardening has to wait and the tomato plants and new olive trees will be purchased next weekend… (maybe)
Our tree, a Tasmanian blue gum was planted 40 years ago… and these little people created by the wonderful May Gibbs live in there.
However, at this time of the year they are a bit of a nuisance.
I have a mountain of work to do but nothing pressing so I'm taking time out for a few days.
