Winter 2013

Autumn leavesIt's getting cold in Adelaide – the middle of June, and the leaves are turning yellow and red on some of the trees in our garden. The jonquils are blooming, and the daffodils won't be far behind.

We've got a great crop of mandarins and lemonades. Been enjoying the mandies with lunches and juiced a couple of bucket loads of lemonades already.

The tangello has a few more fruit this year, and the new lime tree also has a couple already (though it obviously isn't liking the cold as it's lost most of it's leaves. I hope they grow back in spring).

It's been pretty wet the last few weeks, so there's some interesting mushrooms growing in the garden mulch
