Morning has broken….

Here in Australia the 1st of June and not the 21st marks the change of season and strangely for a non lover of cold weather I am enjoying this second week of Winter.  I could live (for a little while :)) with crisp cold nights coupled with chilly mornings that turn into cloudless dry sunny warmish days.

We had those sort of Winter days for several years during the long Millennium Drought (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000s_Australian_drought) and there’s no way anyone of us wants to revisit them  So I will live with our often very wet unpredictable Victorian Winters and be happy when we get these ‘special days’

One of the pleasures of these special days are the sunrises.  See the glow on the deck roof – this was about 7.20 am.  Yes that’s sunrise time at the moment.

A look to the left over a sleepy suburb and I realised how much that Pittosporum had grown.  It covered most of the sky making it hard to capture that beautiful sunrise.

And moving to the right you could see the sun beginning to move up into the sky from behind the back neighbour’s rooftop.

It probably sounds a bit corny but standing there I had this hymn running through my mind reminding me of school assemblies and services I attended in a small village church many years ago

  1. I remember those drought years and day after day of cold and crisp mornings and fine sunny days……and no rain. They should only be extra special winter days here, not the normal. I expect you were away when there was the false spring that happened before winter when some plants flowered in the late warmth.

  2. Love the song, a great momory from younger days.

    One of my acquaintances here lived in the UK for a number of years after she got married. Her husband is from Nottingham which is easy to remember because of the
    sherrif.

    I hope you don’t have a drought, especially like the previous one!

  3. Droughts are dangerous for plants, especially large trees, which I love. Here’s to rain, in moderate amounts, of course! Now that song’s going to go through my head all morning..oh well, at least it’s a melodious one!

  4. Good Morning, Cathy. Most definitely the weather is changing, it does it all the time. I’m hoping you get the kind of winter weather you want. I like seeing the sunrise with the colors in the sky. (so much better than rain clouds)
    Thanks for the tune – always a favorite!

  6. The weather has been very nice the last few days. But yes. Rain although isn’t nice to love with day in day out. Is still very needed if we are to get our water levels up again.

  7. No matter what country we live in, we all are graced by beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Even poor third world countries can rejoice in the paintings of the sky.
