It's Winter where we live in Australia

The branches are bare
The skies are grey
The bird's nest is empty
 but remains strongly woven and gathered
The kindling is piled high
  in the old baby's bath

The wood is stacked
The Silver Birches have shed their leaves
 to expose the goats' shelter shed
The goats have relocated to a new paddock
The weeping cherry still stands proud

The last of Pierre de Ronsard blooms are hanging on

And everywhere you see it is wet wet wet from glorious rain!

"To everything (turn turn turn)
There is a season (turn turn turn)
And a time to every purpose under heaven" quote the Byrds.

How fortunate are we to experience all four seasons of the year!
Wishing you all a most wonderful weekend
whether you are sweltering
or rugging up
somewhere in between
enjoy your time!
Love Suzy


  1. Hi Suzy - You know I just have such a hard time remembering that it is now winter for you - we have waited SO long here for our summer - our winter was SO long~~ there is something quite wonderful about experiencing all the seasons - there is beauty to found in each one.

    Your new blog header is fabulous~


  2. This is such a lovely post to honor your winter and the wonderful rain it brings. We have finally finished winter here in Northern California and have enjoyed three glorious sunny days with perfect temperatures. Yes, we do have all four seasons too. Warm Winter to you...

  3. Hi Suzy,
    beautiful post and I love all the seasons.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  4. Beautiful pictures, dear Suzy! It looks like you are prepared for some cozy evenings in front of the open fireplace :-).
    Have a wonderful weekend, sweet friend!
    Sending you big hugs and warm wishes,

  5. How did I not know you had angora goats? What sweet animals they are...gorgeous shots of the tree architecture. xox Corrine

  6. Beautiful pics! We're just getting our spring weather (finally!) now that summer is almost here. Enjoy the cool and the rain.

  7. Wonderful pictures! I am gald to be in summer here, we had a long hard winter, but it is beautiful..isn't it?
    Well you will have lots of inside time to create!

  8. Seems so strange to me that you are in winter. I am still waiting for summer. Our Spring was cold and full to the brim with rain. I am hoping for a long warm summer. May you have a great weekend friend. Hugs, Sharon

  9. Well it is coming up to summer here in the UK, but the weather can change from one minute hot to freezing the next, weird. I saw a hedgehog today in my garden, the first I've seen for years and lots of birds, baby ones being fed.

  10. Hi my sweet Suzy,
    Oh dear what gorgeus photoes you have taken--I love your collage, and all the wintery pictures from your beautiful garden- the zinc looks so beautiful with all the cut branches inside, -and I love the Byrds quote,too( and the whole song )-your place is a wonder in rain,too, dearest friend-the peppels so beautifully, collered by the water--- Oh Suzy this is a lovely post-and indeed we are lucky to be able to live where we can breathe and feel all seasons.
    I send you so much love and hugs-

  11. Suzy, so hard to imagine you're experiencing winter when it was in the 90s here this week! Our winter was toooo long though. It's wonderful to have everything blooming again and I agree about experiencing 4 seasons!
    Hugs, Diane

  12. I love the beauty of winter and your pictures capture that beauty so beautifully! I left Florida many years ago so that I could get back to living in four seasons. I don't regret it one whit.

  13. Suzy,we are so lucky down here..Winter has set in but nothing a warm cuppa and crackling fire can't remedy..xx

  14. Ahhh...
    We are just entering our hot months, although we have had a very mild spring, which has been lovely.
    Your creations are so beautiful. You are such an inspiration.
    Have a lovely week~

  16. Wow Suzy, you love all the things I love. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog so I could discover yours. Your work is gorgeous. I love crazy quilt stitches and have really wanted to learn the stitches. Everything I look at is amazing. Happy Winter.
