It’s spring! Not that you would know it, how­ever.

Since Septem­ber 1 I feel like I have had the heater crank­ing and worn more lay­ers than in win­ter.

Last week was a bizarre sight with hail coat­ing the CBD paths and gar­dens and fill­ing up the awnings.

I also felt for the team at The Lit­tle Goat who were in the mid­dle of the chaos all alone, but then swamped by cus­tomers when the weather bright­ened up.

But de­spite the crazy weather, it is spring. And this week we have a great gar­den­ing col­umn about how to grow flow­ers from seeds, P28.

We also con­tinue our lo­cal elec­tion cov­er­age with pro­files on the 13 can­di­dates in the North­ern ward, P6. They are vy­ing for just four seats and there is only one in­cum­bent.

Vot­ing doc­u­ments will be de­liv­ered from Septem­ber 16 to 21.

I en­cour­age you to en­gage with the elec­tions and have your say.
