...... but hopefully not "The Last Rose of Summer" (Robbie Burns).
I'm sure most Australian gardeners are relieved to have reached this day,
and hoping for less heat and more rain in the next few weeks.
Admittedly, here in Canberra the weather throughout February
has been quite bearable with temperatures mostly in the low 30ºs.
Some suburbs have had good rains, but alas, it's often fallen as hail and storms,
resulting in substantial damage to buildings and gardens.
So, on the eve of Autumn, here's hoping for more substantial
but gentle rains soon.
