Spring has sprung with some hot and cold weather…

This week started off cold for Spring in Brisbane. The minimum was 7 degrees C and maximum today was 29 degrees C.  So we have been rugged up in winter woollies and beating the heat in shorts and t-shirts. 

The trees are getting their leaves back and the fruit is starting to grow.  We recently purchased lemon, lime and grapefruit trees for our backyard and they are flowering with their first fruits (small).

While at the hardware/garden store we purchased a birdhouse for the kids to put in the Jacaranda tree.

This time of year is great for thinking about heading outdoors to the parks, pools and beaches before it gets too hot and crowded.

This weekend my husband purchased a boat trailer after wanting one for many years he finally got a great deal and can pull his tinnie around himself.  This should keep him and the boys occupied during the Christmas holidays. Winking smile

Where do you go with your boat?
