Changing Seasons

Happy first day of Spring to all my family, friends and fellow bloggers who reside in the northern hemisphere.  With your Spring comes our Autumn; the ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfullness’.  The ripening on the vines and the lengthening of the afternoon shadows.

The 2014 vintage is well underway in our local wine region, McLaren Vale whilst ‘Mad March’ is in full swing in the city.  Mad March actually starts in February and it’s a great time to be in Adelaide and to experience all that the city has to offer.  These annual events include the Adelaide Fringe, the Adelaide Festival, Womadelaide, and Clipsal500.

So while you are flinging back the shutters and opening the windows, we are ending the season with a big party before we knuckle down for a few months but not before we have seen some of the Cricket World Cup games at the Adelaide Oval; then we can slow the pace down and anticipate what the rest of the year holds for us.  Happy hatching!

Spring in California is officially March 20, although with little rain and warm temps it might as well be spring. We did get snow in the Sierras but we need more to end this drought. So odd to think of you starting Fall down under 🙂


Being in drought is a terrible time so I hope some decent rain arrives for you soon. I love the fact that we experience opposite seasons to the majority of the world’s population – what a great planet we are! 🙂
