Fire season

The grass on the mountains and hills is no longer the emerald green that it was at the height of summer, in December. The grass has gone to seed and is turning towards the tawny lion colour of autumn, then winter.
It also means we're entering fire season. That's why fire breaks are now being burnt, and the highway's grass verges bushwhacked.
Before Easter gets here it's the blessing of this season to enjoy cosmos flowering. But more about that later....
