Winter is almost here

What a difference a day makes.  Yesterday was fine and there was a sprinkling of snow on the hills behind our home.  It did look so pretty in the cool autumn sunshine when I was out and about yesterday.

First snowfall of the season

Then the rain came down and washed the snow away.   In fact, it’s hardly stopped raining today – it’s wet, cold and miserable.  Both of us had separate Morning Tea get-togethers with a couple of groups we are involved with, and it was nice to stay home in the afternoon all warm and cozy.

No sign of the hills over the back fence today

It’s just as well we are not away in the caravan at the moment – overnight temperatures have dropped down to the minuses in various parts of the country.  And it’s not quite winter yet, but it’s coming up soon.  The first day of winter will be next  week on the 1st of June.
