At 7pm this evening I can hear the sounds of an Aussie summer. A local Salvation Army band is walking the hot humid streets, stopping here and there to play carols for all to enjoy.
I can hear the neighbourhood children playing road cricket on a quiet street.
Miss E likes to join in with the fun too.
I can also hear the garden hose now watering these purple petunias for today was another hot dry day and there are more yet to come this week.
