Welcome to Spring everyone.
Or, a belated welcome to spring I should say…We are on the 13th after all.
With a bit of luck, the cold winter weather will soon pass and we will be on our way to warmer days.
Fortunately, there is a beautiful community in South Perth of people who support and look after each other.
So when the nights are cold and you need a friend you can call someone, or join in for dinner, or go out for a nice hot meal.
When I used to be killing bugs as a pest controller myself back in Sydney, several years ago, I experienced a very similar thing.
The community around me was very friendly and helpful. They all lent a helping hand where and when they could, often no questions asked.
I am very pleased that despite the move into a new neighborhood, now no longer recently, that this type of caring culture remains.
With the welcome of spring, people begin to come out of the woodwork and start to spread their wings again.
The sun begins to beam through into the dark, cold corners of the house, and the frozen up joints of the body.
The dandelions and lilies at the front of my house have begin to bloom and the birds and other critters have started to frolic in the trees and warmth of the sun.
I must say, this is probably my favourite time of year. When it is too cold to be hot, and too hot to be cold.
Put on a pair of jeans and a jumper and you feel just right (in my opinion anyway)
I guess before we know it, we will be back to the full warmth and UV light of the Perth Summer Sun. Let us enjoy this time of year whilst we still can.
What are you looking forward to getting up to in the coming months? Maybe see old friends? Start planting some new vegetables or plants? Maybe begin reading or writing a new book?
Either way, I wish you the best.
For now, from here at South Capitol Neighborhood. We wish you a happy spring and hope to share some light with you in the coming months.
For those of you who come by my neck of the woods, please feel free to drop me a line and we can arrange to catch up and say hello.
For now, let us talk again soon.
