After torturing me with well over two months of UN-RE-LENT-ING rain, the temperature finally dropped low enough for this to happen …

Our backyard - the bean pyramid, our newly enclosed patio, and falling snow

Our backyard – the bean pyramid, our newly enclosed patio, and falling snow

It’s not much, just a handful of centimeters, but there’s more in the forecast.

Will we, or nil we, the Seasons turn … The Summer Tree takes on new foliage and becomes the Winter Tree …

Wet snow drapes the windsock  low

  1. I’m sure there’s more to come. Colder temps too, so it will probably stick around.

    We’ve had the rain too… and just one brief flurry of snow on the hills… but they keep forecasting it. And me and the dog keep hoping it will come when we can play and not when I have a long drive ahead πŸ˜‰

    We’re still having the unrelenting rain – I would settle for some nice frost. I love your tree.

    I’ve only experienced snow once, on a visit to relies in Hungary, and I didn’t like it one bit. Commiserations?

      Apart from Mrs Widds, snow was the primary motivator for my move here. πŸ™‚

          Always attracted to it.
          Ever since I can remember I always wanted to live in high pointy mountains, not ones that are being worn down, (although the Blue Mountains, where I lived for about a decade came close) evergreens and four seasons and snow.
          Maybe it’s being born in England. Even though I was only 2 when we emigrated, that early imprinting must’ve taken. The North-Western hemisphere is where my roots are. πŸ™‚

            Wow…I was born in Hungary, but in the capital, so no real connection to ‘country’. I imprinted on Wagga Wagga where we spent our first year in Australia. I’ll never be a bush girl and into camping and all that, but I love the muted palette of olive greens, golden browns and the light, that special light.
            I spent a year in Europe in my twenties and loved it, but in the end I longed for home. πŸ™‚

    It looks incredible but I must admit I am more partial to summer bangs.
