"The time is out of joint" . . . Hamlet
where seasons stand upon their head
autumn has become spring
trees that managed to retain their leaves in summer
are in full bloom
those that dropped them in summer's extreme heat
are leaping into leafage like spring lambs
autumn crocus and grape hyacinths
dance hand in hand in garden beds
the seasons are in revolt and arbitrarily change
from day to day
the world as we knew it has gone on holiday
and in it's place we have
'Earth in Upheaval'
pink crabapple in full bloom,
better than I have ever seen it in springtime
the paddocks are greening with our first autumn rain
and we are crossing our fingers for more
meanwhile I enjoy these 'darling buds of May'
and the fabulous flush of flowers in my rose garden
as I dig up potatoes for my lunch.
