Summer has come early to Sydney this year, and it’s like nothing we’ve ever experienced before.
30+ degree temperatures for many days, even in early October, officially the start of spring.
The give-away that summer is here — ready or not — are the plants and trees in flower.
Such as the Christmas bush in next door’s garden (picture above), which started flowering in early October instead of … well .. at Christmas time! The gum trees are flowering, and everything is rushing to seed.
Great for the bees, but we’re somewhat fearful about what we’ll experience when we get to actual summer!
Climate change, it’s here.
