Photo Friday – Summer in Adelaide

Summer has hit with a vengeance, with sunshine, lightning storms and our first statewide fire ban day. Back in the garden, we’re still doing the pre-Christmas clean up in the front yard (and getting rid of fire hazards). We’re getting visitors: we spotted a baby blue tongue in the vege garden and a spider near the front door.

It won’t be long til the rolling green Adelaide Hills will become the brown dry hills.

The jacaranda are blooming, which heralded exams when I was at school and uni.

More travels around Adelaide show some of it’s historic architecture – one of my favourite things about the city.
