World Weather (and weeds)
If you have been listening to my twitter talk lately, you’ll already know that things are getting very cool around here. Temperatures are regularly in the single figures (translates to less than 48 degrees in Farenheit) in my kitchen at breakfast time (til the heater kicks in anyway!). I admit I am a bit of a cold frog, so the winter woollies have been unearthed already! Some properties around here have even registered the first frosts of the year.
It feels for all the world like we have leapt from Summer directly into Winter – which is a shame, as Autumn is my very favourite season.
I took Dash and Violet for an explore yesterday (Mothers’ Day) when it warmed up and they had a lovely time collecting treasures and hacking at wild cucumber plants. I wandered off to get some shots of purple weeds and old weathered timber.
The outlook for the week ahead is for more of the same (our place seems to get a bit colder than that forecast for our nearest town which is 50km away).
We don’t mind if the cloud cover keeps those cooler temps at bay… even if they only bring us less than one millimetre of rain! The pasture is definitely drying off and losing that amazing vivid green of our post-January rains. I am thinking we need to get ourselves ready for another dry cold Winter…
How’s things at your place?
Hot? Sunny? Cold? Windy? Dry? Green?
