Spring is almost here! for us in the Southern hemisphere anyway, with the approach of the equinox on the 23rd of September, though a friend in Adelaide tells me her almond tree pronounced Spring is here! with a gorgeous burst of blossom back in late July, (that tree clearly not consulting the calendar), while another friend living north of the Tropic of Capricorn tells me they only talk of the wet and dry seasons. Assigning seasons is a precarious business.
August has come and gone as the mystery of time continues to unfold and we have managed to catch a few snippets of it here.
