Not much happening at the moment. Too tied up with family commitments to walk much. Well that is walk much during daylight hours. Though I have to share, the longer dark and the colder days are giving us an amazing natural display from our own patch of earth.
What a wonderful show everyday as the temperatures drop to 0 overnight. The diamonds that form on the ground and shimmer in the occasional appearance of an early morning traffic light I reflect are always a pleasant reminder of the beauty the cold brings….. as I walk in the dark.
Only a month tomorrow until the winter solstice and the shortest day! Then it will get colder but the days will start to return! Happens so fast I can’t believe it. I’ve missed the best of the autumn leaves already! But I am appreciating the clear nights that allow star gazing. The Aurora Australis is meant to be at the peak of it’s cycle this year. But we haven’t managed to catch a glimpse of it yet! Lets hope the darkness over the next few months will bring it our of hiding. I have an eager family waiting to meet it!
All the best and enjoy your week!
