Melbourne is experiencing strange, spring weather as high pressure systems sweep in from the north. They work against waves of cold fronts that sweep in from the southern ocean, the result are waves of warm, windy days followed by blasts of cold weather. The plants are confused. To bloom or not to bloom? That is the question this bonsai Japanese maple is asking as it is baked one day only to be frozen the next. Ahhh, Melbourne and it’s seasons.
