Down under with more temperate climates spring is just a date. No dramatic winter to recover from and more a flag that daylight saving and a scorching bushfire season is approaching.

It’s a good growing season before water restrictions and heat fry most living things. I use it as another excuse to spring clean and cull. Anything I’m not using another may need.

approaching spring such
true joy for chilled northerners
heralds here autumn

d’Verse, spring, Frank
