Brrr… the cold snap in Melbourne has made herself at home… rain is falling as I type and the heater is on high… but yesterday we managed to squeeze in a walk, in between the showers.
Winter has her own chilly beauty… bare and exposed branches… raindrops on flowers… moss and lichen… and every shade of green imaginable.
I do love that winter makes you want to hibernate indoors and slow down the pace… long slow cooked casseroles and soups… lots of hot cuppas… crocheting to the sound of rain… That’s my plan for today at least anyway.
How about you? Are you somewhere toasty hot and beachy, looking out at blue waves rolling in? Or are you close to the fire, watching the grey sky settle in for the day?
May your view be one that warms your heart.

Oh my gosh. Your photos are SO beautiful, bearlovesdove. They transport me straight to Melbourne and her chilly but stunning winters. What part of Melbourne is this? I’ll have to visit when I get home. I’m a Melburnian currently living in China for a year, where it’s 30C and the middle of summer, so it’s nice to feel the cold of Melbourne from a distance, through your photos. Thanks for taking them! x
Aw thank you so much Isabel! These pics are taken in dandenong ranges near Olinda and we’ve been so deep in winter this week. Cold grey days with lots of rain, everything is so beautifully green and lush 💚
