It's supposed to be getting cold in the southern States today, and cooler up here as well.
I have to say that, so far, this Brisbane "winter" has been very mild. And I don't think it's just in my mind - there seem to be things fruiting/flowering in the garden out of season. The dwarf mulberry, in particular, which is not doing very well in a pot and needs to be moved, has been fruiting in the last month. The lavender has also been flowering a lot, although to be honest, I don't recall if lavender normally does well at this time of year.
