            Well, it's really the Meteorological that, to me, Victoria, that defines the Seasons and that defined by the date I said.:dunno::love30::cat-kittyandsmiley:

              It's still Summer in Shineyland :blue thumb: :SUNsmile:

              Mid 20's and sunny both days - but cold nights. Forecast rain tonight and 20C tomorrow and sunny for all the next fortnight apart from one day. Will they have got it right - I wouldn't hold my breath! :nonofinger:

                Personally I think in Britain the meteorological seasons better fit the weather than than the old ones.
                Summer not starting until the end of june is a bit odd to me, likewise September always comes on time with cold nights, even if it does often warm up a bit after the beginning of september it does very often change the weather.

                As for "mid summers day" being the 24th June?????????:biggrin:

                  Well I'm not allowing autumn here just yet. My Plumeria has got flower buds getting ready to open, so it's still summer until further notice :biggrin::hapfeet::yahoo::hotsun:

                    Whenever the dates are the seasons aren't definable anymore. :doh:This years weather here has been a repeat of last year. Summer in April and May, June and July cold and wet - so more like Spring. August was mostly dry but temperatures were lower than normal.
