Desperately Seeking Spring

 
Winter has it's own beauty.
 
Like fog on the lake.
 


Dew drops on sedge


Frosty cobwebs on the Tangled Lignum.


Sun burning through the fog.


This is my favourite.


The hot pink tips of a leucodendron bring some warmth.


Yes, yes it looks very mystical and romantic but bloody hell, I'm sick of being cold.

I am utterly hankering for some signs of Spring, warmth and SUN!!

And later that afternoon I found some signs that Spring isn't too far away.

At Sonofagun No.2s school!


Broadbeans in the school vegie garden.  A wintery vegetable but fresh growth screams Spring.


Cornflowers, oh yes!



And while they always live at the local train station, the Rainbow Lorikeets screeching and flapping around the palms feel summery. Even though on this next morning when I took this photo, it was about 10 degrees celcius.


I have been loving my new cotton mitts.

 
I started making a new pair in pinks and apricots. But wasn't a huge fan of the colourways.
 


So for the tutorial I am writing, I started a new pair in peacock inspired colours.  Purple, teal, dark blue, pinks, silver...


Photography is always best in a well lit sunny room, but this is not common lately.  However I am hoping to have the tutorial finished soon.

Just before the Northern Hemisphere autumn!  I was thinking of taking a pair with me when I fly up to that side of the planet in just 4 weeks time, but I think it may still be a little warm.
The Google tells me the temperature should be around the early 20s (celcius). Just warm enough to enjoy being out with out being too hot.
