To us, of course, this is what Winter is all about! Today it's been a very pleasant 26 deg C (86 F) and this evening we're expecting a slightly cool 16 C (60 F). During the week the mercury dropped to 10 C (50 F) on a couple of nights, so we donned our winter pj's and even threw a doona on the bed!
The morning skies have been quite beautiful lately, but it's getting harder getting up early enough to see all these glorious colours ... it's a little chilly before daybreak!
The garden is still taking a bit of a back seat because of my work commitments at the moment, but hopefully that will change in a couple more weeks. So, lets see what's blooming around my place this week.
Out in the Courtyard Garden there are a few flowers on the potted plants, brightening up that space.
Elsewhere, in outdoor garden beds there are some lovely blooms.
Now here's a sight that tells you it's Winter here!
The nights have started drawing in early ... the sun disappears around 5.30 now, so our days are getting shorter.
It's almost time to start cooking the Corned Beef with lashings of mashed potato, cabbage and greens ... and, of course, the white sauce!
Then it'll be time for the Ugg boots!
