Today is the 1st September. The first day of spring. It is a real spring day with bright, warm sunshine and no wind. In my pocket-handkerchief backyard the Jasmine is in beautifully perfumed full bloom and over the back fence, in the park across the road, the birds are singing from the tops of the trees. There are no leaves on the trees but the buds are swelling and on my lemon tree there are small flowers just opening. Sitting in the sun with a cup of tea I can hear bees in the Jasmine and a magpie is singing on the neighbours TV aerial.
