Spring has sprung, at least on this Huon Valley almond tree. The official start date is September 1.
Spring is also the time when Tasmanian gales get serious. Looks like they already have started getting serious in Melbourne, with a jetty snapping off and floating away … story here.
With 60km/h winds and up to 20mm of rain forecast in Tassie for the weekend (see below), it’s a great time for pea and ham soup.
