Time of Year

Winter is well and truely upon us. We've even had unexpected snow at our place. It's time to break out the new gumboots and make the most of any sunshine that comes our way.

We've been enjoying walking through our local bush reserve, spotting and identifying interesting fungi and talking to the friendly fantails.

When the weather gets a bit wobbly we snuggle in front of the fire, and enjoy the company of good friends, basking in whatever sunshine can struggle through the clouds.

The mama hibernates on the couch under her new thrifted crochet blanket plotting her winter knitting conquests! The colours will cheer me up through our seemingly endless wet winter.
