Farewell to Winter Wednesday...

[The Spencer Gulf on this warm and sunny August day]

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
~ Henry Van Dyke

August is drawing quickly to a close, and so is winter, most definitely!
August always can surprise with some truly beautiful - what some may even term perfect - weather, and this week so far has been just that: Clear blue skies, a slight breeze, and a warming sun.

I'm annoyed that I'm unable to get outdoors and truly enjoy this weather. I could be out in the garden, but alas! I'm stuck in the office instead.

No doubt this weather won't last for long: Soon it will be September and windy!

  1. I love that quote - fortunately this year it seems to have worked in our favour...

  2. Lovely end to the season and how perfectly you summed up August.

  3. Spring certainly did seem to come early this year, it was fabulous to get these last perfect days.
