Oops – a little late in posting about my month of May…
In the south west of Western Australia the month of May is in the latter part of the Djeran season on the indigenous Noongar calendar. The days and nights get colder and wetter as the season progresses ahead of the wintry season of Makuru.
My personal visual calendar for this May is testamount to Djeran. We were wearing jumpers on the 1st May and we dodged showers and storms throughout the month. There was a powerful storm in Perth on the 21st May that caused flooding, brought trees down and left 60,000 households without power. My photo of the day shows how stressed by the wild weather our dog was – not! Ha! We lost power the following sunny afternoon for no apparent reason – just long enough to enjoy candlelight for a while.
The season gave me more time for illustrating recipes, making cards, crocheting slippers – in between household tasks, domestic paperwork (hence the ‘help’ pic) and mostly happy events with friends and family.
May the wind always be at your back,
