Thank you. These were taken last month during the warm days.
Now practically all days are warm day ...

It's the opposite here, it's been an unusually cold summer and autumn.  Winter may be vile as welll.  Not too cold but wet and very windy.

My sister in Kansas City has been complaining about a very long winter there. April was more like March back there.

I was wondering, a friend of mine went on a trip to the Yukon and saw the Northern Lights.
I would guess the same phenomenon happens around the South pole too.
Is that right?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Spring 2018 in Guillin.
Time for a walk on one of the first warm and sunny days.

Nice photos. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks. She loves to have her picture taken and I like taking pictures so we're a good match.

Guilin gets an average of 74 inches of rain a year and half that comes in April, May, and June.
So when the weather gets nicer I'll probably be taking more pictures.

Thank you. I'm glad smart phones have such good cameras in them now.
It's so much easier than lugging a big camera around you neck when you go out.

Your thinking is correct Robert.  In the northern hemisphere it's the Aurora Borealis and in the south it's the Aurora Australis.  From time to time they can be seen at 30° South latitude. I've seen them from Tasmania and southern Western Australia plus south of Melbourne.  The Aurora Australis is as spectacular as it's more famous northern hemisphere cousin.
