```That's not too hard:

x11(width=7,height=5)
par(cex.axis=.8)
fin_month<-month
fin_month[fin_month>6]<-fin_month[fin_month>6]-12
fin_month<-fin_month+6
plot(fin_month~year,axes=FALSE,type="l", ylab="Month", xlab="Year",
main="Month of occurrence in year")
axis(1,at=seq(1981,2014,3))
fin_months<-month.abb[c(7:12,1:6)]
axis(2,at=1:12,labels=month.abb[c(7:12,1:6)])
library(plotrix)
boxed.labels(year,fin_month,month.abb[month],border=NA,cex=0.7)
