Summer solstice 2016

Perth’s summer solstice in 2016 was spent in dry 42 degree heat with the half-promise of an afternoon thunderstorm. As is commonly the case in Perth summers, a strong easterly blew for most of the morning, bringing down swathes of bark (some yet to fall are still hanging from the tree, below), an assortment of branches and mounds of leaves from the tall eucalypts at the back of the estate. There’s something quite alarming about hearing sudden crashing although it is generally louder, on my estate, than is warranted by the size of whatever spears into the ground. I will be quite up-front here and say I would prefer to celebrate the summer solstice rather than Christmas if only I could find so
