We're greeting the first day of another month and March is officially the start of Autumn Downunder. Here in my north-eastern corner of Oz though, the leaves don't start changing colour and there's no noticeable change in conditions. It's still sunny, hot and humid. We've had the occasional overcast showery day over the last couple of weeks of February, as the Summer drew to a close.
Overall though, the Summer of 2012-2013 has been rather dry. We've had less than half of our average summertime rainfall, with the months of December and February being particularly drier than usual. We haven't seen days and days and days of heavy monsoonal downpours this wet season. Of course, the rain that has been falling has been greatly appreciated by the garden.
So, onto what's blooming on this first Friday and first day of our Autumn.
