We have had a spate of mild days in the midst of Winter and it has been nice to walk in the sun. Our plants have been misled somewhat and we've seen early Spring blooms and also green tree buds unfurling their leaves. Here an ash is stretching up to the sky with buds opening up to release burgeoning new leaves. As the old adage says: "Ash before oak, in for a soak"...
And yes, Winter weather is back and snow has already started falling in Victoria's alps, as the state braces for its coldest spell in two years. A cold front pushing up from the Southern Ocean, combined with a low pressure system developing off Gippsland, is expected to bring rain, hail, freezing winds and more snow to the state from tomorrow!
