Sprinter and Sprummer – Australia’s Changing Season by Timothy Entwisle (a book I read a while ago).
Timothy suggested instead of a traditional spring, that Australia has a Sprinter (Spring and Winter) and Sprummer (Spring and Summer).
Totally agree with him! Winter lasted for about 9 weeks this year, and since the second week of August, we have been in Sprinter.
The nights are cold, with temperatures still falling to -2 or -3 celsius overnight. However the days are glorious with temperatures up to 15 degrees and sunny.
The bees are buzzing, the birds are nesting and spring is in the air!
