These photos are taken from the top of my driveway, looking in a south, south easterly direction. As you can see there is still a touch of green but that is in the house paddock . Still it's nice not to be looking at dry grass everywhere. The paddock is very dry but on the distant hills there is also a tiny touch of green, due to the lovely rain on New Years Eve and the following evening. Mind you with this warm weather it will dry off pretty quickly.
We have a lovely view of the hills and mountains further round to the right and when it gets really cold in winter, we get a sprinkling of snow on the top of the hills, usually only lasts a day but looks lovely.
Needed something cool and refreshing after dinner last night, the boys went for a walk, whilst I got outside and did a few jobs in the relative cool.
I chopped up some watermelon, pineapple and kiwi fruit and added some mint leaves and chilled it till they came home. Mint just gives it a lovely twist and is very refreshing.
Had a little hiccup trying to upload photos last night, so decided to wait till this morning when it was cooler and I wasn't going to get so frustrated.
Warm wishes to all those in the Northern hemisphere enduring the wintery weather and to those dealing with this heat, stay cool.
