Tag Archives: Winter Wednesday

It’s that time of the year again

Yesterday was Tuesday 1 June
officially the first day of winter 2021 in Australia.

I wonder what is in store for us this year.
When I had a quick glance late in the afternoon the first week didn’t look too bad – a bit wet maybe but not too cold

Hopefully it’ll be nothing like this ‘poem/carol’.
remembered from my childhood
In the bleak midwinter by Christina Rosetti.

In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan;
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter
.
Long ago.



But then this is Melbourne so it could be anything!

Whats the year round weather like in Melbourne? – this might explain – but let’s just say, 4 seasons in one day is quite often the way it’s described 😎☔️⛱⛈☀️💨
