Autumn Whisper

Anyone else completely baffled by the weather this week?

Melbourne went from a perfect 30 degree day on Sunday to grey and gloomy the next.

In typical Melbourne style the seasons changed from summer to autumn overnight. Driving home tonight I noticed the autumn colours and the leaves falling from the trees.

Right up until last week I was still making summer cocktails. As fast as I can break out the winter woolies I’m switching to an autumnal theme.
