Winter sunshine

I really love clear, cold, sunny winter days!

G sets a fire in the bedroom:



.... which provides Gus with a perfect opportunity to toast his little toes:



We let the heady scent of Wintersweet fill the room:


.... and bask in the soft morning light streaming through our bedroom windows, quaintly coloured at the top by the deco-patterned stained glass.



Later, we walk in the sunshine, admiring delicate, abundant eucalypt blossoms. These tangles of pollen and nectar are a feast for local wildlife as well as for the eyes ...





We start a hearty meal sizzling on the stove:



and we watch the clouds creep in, blushing as the evening descends.


Ahh, winter! You always bring a smile to my face!

Beautiful pictures! That fireplace looks so cosy. And Gus... He's my favorite! He has something of an Afghan hound look to him in this photo :-) (He is a pure bread cocker spaniel, right?)

.... well, he's as silly as an Afghan hound, but pure-bred cocker as far as we know (we adopted him from another family who gave him away - advertised 'free to a good home').

Beautiful photos, your home looks gorgeous. And Gus is a real cutie!

Why is it Gus that gets all the good press!

I'm glad to hear you adopted Gus - we adopted our dog too. It's a great thing to be able to do. But who could part with Gus? Cutest of all cuties!?

PS: Tell G he looks cute too, doing his Cinderella pose ;-)
