Snow, very rare these days with global warming. We used to get a couple of falls every winter, but they dwindled and weakened, so it was a bit of a shock to get a fall which settled, and which then froze hard after falling.

This photo is from southern Tasmania, which is colder even than we are here in the mountains in Victoria.  There's something in the photo you'll never see in the northern hemisphere:  a tree-fern with snow on it.  Tree-ferns are very slow-growing, but make up for that by being so beautiful.

Well, the snow didn't last.  It's chilly but not cold enough for snow.  And every year winter seems to be shorter and summer hotter.  So I enjoyed the snow while we had it.
