The transient treasures of summer
Summer’s treasures are transient — the monsoon storm and the rainbows left to shimmer in its wake; the perfect, starlit night filled with the smell of a great barbecue and music floating in the air from who knows where. And then there are summer’s precious gems, the glorious, gleaming gifts cultivated with care in our gardens or surprising and delighting us on the banks of bar ditches along the roadside — flowers.
