Chance of a cloud with possible cyclone. Or not.

Summer in Perth. Hot this year. Sticky. Fremantle Doctor (the afternoon sea-breeze) has been slack and the easterly has been firm.
Trees and shrubs maintain what green there is in the garden and the vegetable garden is slow and lazy, hardly growing in the heat.
For a day or two we expected a cyclone, we all dreamt of heavy rain.. but nothing happened. Drizzle.. a light wind. Avoided catastrophe yet again. Phew.

The floods in Queensland and Victoria will make the price of fruit and vegetables rise, so it is a good time to get into growing your own.
