Summer in Sydney
The crepe myrtle spreads a pink carpet on the ground and we wake in the morning to the strong sweetly cloying perfume of the murraya.
The temperatures are in the high 30C and the southern states have severe to catastrophic fire warnings for the next few days, meantime the northern part of NSW has had so much rain the rivers have broken their banks and flooded. Who would be a farmer in Australia, if your stock are not burning to death, they are drowning.
Anyone in the northern hemisphere want to swap some heat for a little snow? - we don't want it ALL thank you, but a just a couple of inches would be nice
