In Canberra, summer can (usually) be hot and dry, the grass turns brown…as far as the eye can see. The air, and everything else just seems to have the water completely dried out from it.
In Northern NSW the climate is semi-tropical, green and lush. Sometimes the humidity feels like a weight, making the air thick and steamy.
Here are some photographs of flowers I came across on my holiday in Northern NSW. Though common in Northern NSW, you just don’t get flowers like these in Canberra!
