AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

After a series of cold, rainy, grey days in what should be Spring, today burst into 30C temperatures!
This is a view of Dromana beach stretching to Safety Beach today on the Mornington Peninsula!
Could this really be Summer?

Surprising weather
Mystery of the seasons
Fickle characters

We experienced similar strange happenings here in Mumbai after the Monsoons!! Bright summery days were suddenly followed by cold grey and dull rains for a day!! The sequence followed a pattern for a while!! Your Haiku says it very well!!
