Another Frostastic Day in Aotearoa !

Driving down into Hamilton Gardens this morning this is the scene that greeted me, I couldn`t resist stopping and taking photos. It was so beautiful, the rising sun shining across the trees, wispy mist above the river, everything sparkling with frost - ahhhh, winter, my favorite season. .

This little sparrow was waiting for crumbs at the Gardens cafe - note her leg hanging down, poor wee thing - she could still fly ok and wasn`t shy .
Working in an environment like the Gardens, just being able to experience the changing seasons, bird life, watching the gardeners create and sustain wonderful gardens, I couldn`t wish for anything better - I never take it for granted. .

There is something special about a bright frosty morning. I suppose daylight is precious in Winter so we just lap it up!

Beautiful photos. So weird to think about you having Winter when we are having 100 degree days! What a world.
