52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Spring

Spring in Brisbane Australia is one of mu favourite times of year. While it is welcomed by everybody after the cooler weather we call winter (which my Great -Aunts from England called "a very pleasant summer" and wandered the beach in thin cotton dresses while we had layer upon layer of clothing and were shivering!).

While not here  the sudden emergence of flowers from the snow (strange white stuff seen in places with a real winter!) spring was still  a time I waited for the flowers and also for the lovely days in short sleeves while the nights still had a bit of chill to the air so you could snuggle under the blankets. The sun gets up earlier and the day light hours increase , getting up in daylight and taking the dog for a walk and smelling the perfume of the gardens.

Spring a perfect time of year!
