ripe mangoes increasing in abundance
flowering rain trees in profligate colour and then leaving their flowers on the ground
madly flowering yellow Tabeuia argentea trees along Trower Road from Casuarina to the end
tempers shortening, more cross words
increasing use of air conditioners
increasing or even re-instated use of swimming pools and spas [ usually usage abandoned in the dry season as it is too cold for locals]
increased use of liquid refreshments - of all types
tourists leaving town
AND...............last but not least - green tree frogs noisely croaking in any damp place, or at any sign of rain!
All are now occurring....................must be close to the troppo season in Darwin.
