We rarely have snowfall where we live. So when it does snow we get very excited. If it does snow in these parts it tends to fall on either side of us in Mount Victoria and Oberon. So what an amazing surprise to see snow starting to fall in mid-October (Spring) right outside our door on Tuesday night. And it kept falling in big, fat and heavy snowflakes. We woke up to a Winter wonderland and started singing about chestnuts roasting on an open fire. The Spring garden, with flowering lavenders, iris and roses was heavily weighed down in a layer of snow and some tree branches were so heavy they snapped off. Please enjoy our photos of the great Little Hartley snowfall event of 2014.

It’s beautiful blossom time in our garden in Little Hartley! And there are still the flowering cherries, peaches and a number of crabapples yet to pop open their fluffy pastel blossoms of delight and cheerfulness
Although Winter is not quite over yet, and Jack Frost might still be around, I thought I would celebrate the frosty year we have had so far. I got close and personal with the frost this year despite chillblains and slipping about wearing little flatty shoes.
So here goes, the miracle that is frost…
Yours in chilliness, Betty-Rose
