Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Snow

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.
