Brrrrr....... and later.

Yesterday's photos were almost summer-like with clear sky and the sun shining on the frost. This morning at 8.30 the sun was still hidden behind the fog, the frost was a bit heavier and it looked just a mite chilly! We don't get a lot of foggy days, so I hope this one clears away soon.

I know these are nowhere near as thick and heavy as those we experienced in England, and although those very heavy frosts are beautiful to look at, I'm quite happy for them stay over there.

By 11 o'clock it looked like the fog wanted to keep us company for much of the day so I took a walk around the hill, mainly to look for spider webs, but didn't find any. So, I just had to be satisfied with these wintery views.













This is my usual 'sunset' view.







I knew there was a sun up there somewhere.

I was inside tucked up under a blanket in front of the fire. It was cold here too. I have even posted about it on my new blog...coming soon. When I took Sophie to school this morning, the frost was amazing.

And I thought it was cold up here, at 25 degrees....

Don't think I'll be visiting for a few months!!

Beautiful pictures as always...even if it shows how cold it was over there! lol Here in Canada when we think of Australia, we assume it's always hot over there, even in your winter months, but now I see it does get cold enough!! I always feel so sorry for the plants when frost hits.

Those are beautiful photos! They are very atmospheric.
Thanks for stopping by and telling me the flower name - I didn't know what they were but thought they were pretty.

I love seeing pictures of your neighbourhood Alice. These are beautiful. Fog is pretty too. Mother Nature sure gives us some variety...she's never boring!
Every time you post pictures of your yard I get a better sense of what it all looks like and how everything is situated. It's a wonderfully interesting yard and you and Richard have made it all so beautiful with all your hard work.
I hope you're keeping warm (at least inside) and getting some good cold weather projects accomplished.

I am always awestuck by your photos Alice. The one with grass taking up most of the photo would make a lovely painting, would you mind if I used it??? Keep warm my friend, xox

Iremember me last winter looking at your lovely pictures of your garden. Now I am looking at the flowers in the states but get to see your garden fadeing away to the look of winter. I feel close through the blog, buy so far away in miles. Thanks for the pictures, I so enjoy checking out your country and the season you are in.

Beautiful photos as always, Alice.

Carol said...

Oh Alice when I first came across your blog you've posted spring flower photos and we've had autumn and then a cold winter overhere and now it's viceversa, that's crazy to see and I wouldn't have thought that you get frost, well you've already told me about, but now after seeing your photos I'm starting to realise it's true!

jellyhead said...

OK Alice, I'm definitely staying put. It looks so freeeeeeezing cold there!

Great photos, as always.

Amazing photos, Alice. I'm grateful it doesn't get that cold down here in Melbourne. Stay warm, Meow
