We had winter yesterday, and it's likely to continue for the next few days.
We like winter days like thisNot nasty, dark, wet, misty, clammy, chill through to the bone winter, but hard frost followed by sunshine winter, just like I remember from growing up in Canberra. It was -5°C overnight, and the frost lasted all day even though the temperature supposedly reached +5°C. This morning we are forecast the same temperature (for some reason, the temperature is at its lowest after sunrise), with icy roads and mists. I will not be reporting back about the accuracy of the forecasts.
Frosted leaves, mid afternoonThe new blog header was taken at about 2.45 yesterday afternoon. It looks beautiful, but I should have worn my gloves.
