First Frost

There may have already been another frost this year.  If so, I wasn't out of bed in time to catch it.  This morning's must have been a beauty, there was still plenty of evidence when I finally snuck my nose out from under the blankets at 9 am.  Past time for the winter bedclothes methinks.  Pretending winter is not happening is just not working.

 

A bit later when I set out for a walk there was a blue smokey haze across the face of the mountain.


I didn't feel like following the track to walk around the farm, took a shortcut through a paddock instead.  Marvellous what the weather can do for a scene - I even admired the reflection in the effluent pond.

  6. What a lovely place. Seems so odd to think about you moving into winter as we move into summer.

  7. What gorgeous images! The NZ countryside is so beautiful.

    There seems to be a problem with text over your third image. I've refreshed the page a few times but it's not going away.
