As I travel the internet visiting sites from across the globe
my head is flooded by images of colourful summer-time.
Meanwhile, I sit here stoking the fire and sipping hot drinks,
dressed in my wooliest of woolies with our kitten on my lap
and a sick little boy nestled, oh so cozily, by my side beneath
layer upon layer of beautiful knitted and crocheted blankets.
Today I am peering out at a wintery countryside landsape.
The sun shines down through the glistening late autumn
leaves and early boughs of snow-white blossom begin to
bloom. Beneath her gown of fog, sleet and grey skies, the
land is green and lush and filled with signs of winter life.
And so, in Australia the mid winter solstice is upon us.
This Saturday afternoon we will be making our way
down to the Collingwood Children's farm's annual
(click here for more details)
for there is much to love about this time of the year,
just take a sneak peek at the latest issue of...
...all those indulgent puddings & cosy desserts. yum!
I hope that you're enjoying the world,
wherever it is that you may live,
and whatever the season there may be.
