While the US is being hammered by Hurricane Sandy, down here, we’re having our first real taste of summer.
It’s officially spring until December 1st, but the next three days are a promise of things to come.
We have clear blue skies and 30C/86F. There is even a bushfire an hour away so yeah, summer is coming.
I confess to preferring cool to hot and this morning at tennis we were a bit surprised at the bite of the sun. So we’re back to sunscreen, lugging grey-water for the garden, pulling down the outside canvas blinds to keep things cool. The upside? The roses are flowering and they are divine.
