I don’t like summer. This seems a controversial statement – like saying I don’t like parties. Perhaps I will tell you about my feelings on parties another time.
I particularly don’t like the type of summer we are having this year. Hot and dry. At least if we get a summer storm most nights, I can be compensated for the scorching heat with luscious green.
5 things I hate about (a dry) summer
- It is too hot to do any gardening. I don’t want to do anything. I neglect and all my sprinter and sprummer work seems to go to waste
- My chooks stop laying but I still have to walk across the paddock in the hot sun to feed them. Seems unfair.
- I have to brace myself to go outside – hanging out the washing is a chore. On the upside, it is dry in about 3 minutes.
- Many trees are less of leaf, or droopy making my heart feel desolate
- My lettuce is bitter.
Meanwhile, I can like summer swimming at night, ceiling fans and Christmas cheer. If I try I can find things to like about summer.

Wow, that sounds difficult. I’m amazed that you have the courage to try!
Swimming at night sounds really wonderful though!
Swimming at night is the best idea for my pale sunburn prone skin!
Number 2 made me giggle. I hate the heat.
