Foggy morning front

This is what greeted me – FOG
Yes, all encompasing all enveloping FOG
Providing us with a very spooky looking neighbourhood

Did you know
Fog is a collection of liquid water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the earth’s surface.  And the foggiest place on earth is Grand Banks off the island of Newfoundland

Foggy morning back

Lots of the nearby trees have dropped their leaves but next door’s Oak Tree hangs on until much later in the season.  And that season would be WINTER

Foggy morning sideJune 1 is the first day of the first month of Winter in Australia.
It’s now my time to grizzle about not seeing the sun and feeling its warmth lol

Mind you it’s also a time for looking forward – to seeing all the Spring bulbs.
Like these jonquils that are now rising out of the ground in the rose bed behind the garage.  And also knowing that once we are past the winter solstice (June 21) the days will become longer and that warmth will be returning:)

Roses down jonquils up

In the meantime I’ll just have to grin and bear it – and keep that happy thought in mind.  It will be a while before the grass will need a weekly cut so I’ll be able to exchange that exercise for raking up the oak leaves when they drop – that will keep me warm as well lol

Winter is the coldest season of the year coming between autumn and spring. It is caused by the axis of the Earth in the respective hemisphere being oriented away from the Sun. When it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa. At the winter solstice the days are shortest and the nights are longest, with days lengthening as the season progresses after the solstice.
