Summer has hit with a vengeance, with sunshine, lightning storms and our first statewide fire ban day. Back in the garden, we're still doing the pre-Christmas clean up in the front yard (and getting rid of fire hazards). We're getting visitors: we spotted a baby blue tongue in the vege garden and a spider near the front door.
It won't be long til the rolling green Adelaide Hills will become the brown dry hills.
And Rose garden at Dearheart's parents' vineyard.
The jacaranda are blooming, which heralded exams when I was at school and uni.
More travels around Adelaide show some of it's historic architecture - one of my favourite things about the city.
