1st Day of Summer :: yes please!

A quick walk in my garden early this morning heralded the new season

of Summer with happy enthusiasm,

as the flowers are just about tumbling over themselves

in eagerness to greet the golden sun,

on this, the very exciting 1st Day of Summer.


And for once, the weather here in Melbourne

has decided to play along with the calendar,

with blue skies and sparkly sunshine.



Wishing you a Happy 1st Day of Summer

if you are also in the Southern Hemisphere,

(and much cosiness instead if you are in the Northern half of the world,

as the golden glow of autumn transitions into the drama of winter).
