Brrrr....it's cold!!!

I got up this morning, got some wood from the back verandah to stoke up the fire and everything was as usual. Yes it was cold but not as cold as Sunday (?) morning.
After a while something caught my attention out of the window.


It wasn't as dark as the photo looks it would have been between 7.30-8am.nd it kept going.......and got heavier. I looked out of my bedroom window......


Hmm....looks pretty. I went onto the front verandah and saw this......



And this....


Then I had to go down the driveway (?) to the back paddock to give the horses some hay....

When I got down the back ....

It was even colder!

Cinnamon wasn't silly she'd had enough of the snow and stayed in the shed until I took her hay in to her....unlike silly Mick who stayed out in it.

So then it was time to head back up the hill to the house....



Hurry up it's cold out here!

Hope you're happy Sharon, lots of Saffron photos!


Up the back steps and home!



Gee I am glad I finished this on Sunday night, it certainly came in handy!

Pretty pretty. You are a real country woman now. So close and yet so far. Cold here but no frost.
Rain, good stuff, all last night.

I couldn't imagine where it would be snowing in July, until I realized you are from Australia! Love reading about your trip to the barn, it so reminds me of my winter trips to the barn here in Illinois.

WOW! I know it's been cold, but not quite as cold as that. We're hoping it snows today while we're home to enjoy it, and not back at school next week.
