I've been living away from Melbourne for almost a decade, and being back is just wonderful. It is my first spring in a long time, and I must say despite the build up it hasn't dissapointed.
The winter was quite cold and seemed to linger (although I have always loved winter). 1 September was not the usually fine spring day, but was wet, windy and freezing! But since then we have had beautifully warm spring days, well not so much warm-warm, but warm if you stand in the sunshine and there's no wind.
We have also had beautiful spring rain and a couple of storms. Ahhh I missed the seasons!
