Friday 10 July 2015


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!

This post is part of the Skywatch Friday meme,
and also part of the Friday Greens meme.


  1. nice shots...just green and blue makes a great picture!

  2. Nice. Greens. My entry is up on my blog too.

  3. Yes.We have had some strange growth too. But somehow we have missed all the blue skies that Melbourne seems to have had.

  4. I can relate, Nick! Until this week, it never seemed like winter and then, today seems springlike again! Your photos are so bright and warm.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
