Oh summer, please don’t go. You’ve been nothing but a tease, an irritating teenager, and a raging lunatic for the past two years, but I keep hoping for a reasonable turn. Is it too much to ask for blue sky, reasonable beach temperatures and low humidity on a regular basis?
But I must admit, even through the hotter-than-an-oven days and the rain and the indecision, I still love you more than winter.
While the weather in Sydney has been schizophrenic at best this summer, the fruit has been spectacular. The cherries and stone fruit and melons and figs are not only pretty but have fabulous personalities – and have been making a regular path through our kitchen .
