Dragonfly Dreamings - Signs of Summer

A koel has been calling from the spotted gum grove around our office for two weeks now, a returning Summer visitor.  Dragonflies are buzzing around our frog pond. This week we heard the first trill from the first Summer cicada and yesterday, Saturday, the first of November's flies reached the coast from Australia's inland and buzzed around those in Dunbar Park at Pittwater's Garage Trail Sale - Summer is on the way - a few visions from the week - in our gardens, our parks, in the water, air and beside the creeks.
