Here in Oz we don't really have distinct seasons of Spring and fall.  Summer is dry and brown ( or during drought blowing clouds of red or black dust) winter is our green growing season when we get our rain if we are lucky. This past winter has been our driest in recoded history. It's going to be a long, hot dry summer here.  My lawnmower guy is very unhappy he has only need to mow my lawns twice since early March this year . Normally in Autumn he mows every three - four weeks and summer every two to three weeks . Everything in my garden is dying .
