A Taste of Spring

5 Aug

What a glorious day we’ve just experienced! Sunshine, caressing breezes, and perfect midday temperatures made Sydney, Australia, a wonderful place to explore.

With a maximum of twenty-two degrees Celsius at about two p.m., ditching our winter woolies was no problem. Hardly souls braved the breakers, with beaches recording (almost) enjoyable water temperatures.

Those whose tastes don’t run to the beaches could enjoy other treats. Magnificent magnolias are in full bloom now, with gorgeous wine-pink blooms atop bare branches. The recent rains have greened the gardens,  so many are fresh and inviting.

And to think: the official start to Spring is a mere four weeks away!
