First day of Spring

I still can't get my head around the Australian seasons.

The year is supposed to go Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. Christmas is supposed to be cold and my Birthday is supposed to be warm.

And so today is the first day of Spring! Maybe it is the beginning of Autumn for you and soon the leaves will be turning golden and the evenings will grow shorter.

Here we will soon be putting away the fleece jackets and hot water bottles and buying one litre tubs of sunscreen to leave by the front door and in the boot of the car. Will it ever feel familiar? Only time will tell...

  1. Our fall won't begin until September 22nd this year. It would hard for me to become accustomed to the difference in Australian seasons I think.
