In Australia, the seasons are defined by grouping the calendar months in the following way: Spring - the three transition months September, October and November. Summer - the three hottest months December, January and February. Autumn - the transition months March, April and May.
Summer may arrive with hot and humid days. Thunder, clouds and torrential rain.
Song of Summer;
The subtropics are hot and dry;
soil and plants are thirsty and get thirstier every day.
Then the clouds roll in black and heavy with moisture.
The first drops bless the soil;
then the heavens open up in earnest.
sheets of driving rain obscure any view.
Earth is caught in this wonderful dance of water,
soaked up quickly by a greedy dry soil,
leaving no puddles.
When the rains come,
life is beginning again,
this is summer. Ts
Roses and summer, petals burned, falling falling; strong fragrance emphasized by heat and sun. No regrets, summer means summer..
