My goodness, when did Winter arrive?

Today is the first day that I have had at home for the last eight weeks, as some of you may know I have been working on the Wizard of Oz production and I have not had much of a chance to see outside. I can't even believe it is June already. Thank you for all the wonderful emails and comments over the last weeks. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and as there is still much to be done, it is not as frantic as it has been. The show finishes on Saturday night, only three more performances, then a big clean up, and then I will be back to this wonderful world of blogging with many new stories to share.

This is what my little world is like at the moment here in the Southern Highlands, Australia, my garden is bare, the twigs are white and it's very cold outside. It feels very strange, I didn't even see the little bulbs come up under my fruit trees this year near where I hang my washing out, actually, I'm not sure why I even hang my washing out as nothing dries at this time of the year.

Welcome to all from Susan's Outdoors Wednesday
