And so we enter the season of rest and dissolution, the clearing away of the old before the eruption of spring newness. Cool, but not yet bone-numbingly cold, the days are enjoyable and the evenings snuggled with blankets, soup, the TV and the heater are gorgeous.
The crisp mornings are gorgeous too, and if one takes the time, and is not too distracted by the cawkling magpies and the diving minor birds, the palette of flowers even at this time of the year is stunning.
A surprise of blooms.
A hanging of young pinecones.
And a sky of gum tree. Happy winter, happy summer everyone!
