Serendipity Experience 63: Welcome Winter.

7:44 PM

Today we must  finally accepted that it is Winter here in Sydney! With all our lovely sunny days it is quite easy to think that we are still in summer. We seem to say to each other in astonishment - "gosh it's cold today!" quite forgetting what season we are actually in.So this week I am embracing the winter winds!!! I am wrapping myself in woolens, relishing in my winter reading list, enjoying the new seasonal produce and the emergence of my new winter bulbs.

  1. One of the most wonderful things about blogging is the ability to "experience" so many different things from around the world. Here in the U.S., our summer will begin in about 3 weeks, and we have had temps in the high 80's for the past couple of days.

    It surely sounds like you are ready for winter Simone, and I do some of the very same things here in about October or November.

    All of these photographs are wonderful, and I thank you so much for sharing them at The Creative Exchange this week.

    Have a wonderful day, and....keep warm!!


  2. Simone, thanks for accompanying me on my walk through the woods on my little hilltop. Perhaps we can continue to travel together these months. I will enjoy your cool temperatures when our muggy heat becomes too much and when you need a warm, green break from your winter weather you can come walk explore with me here in the Ohio Valley (US). Your photo of the gloves and cherries is wonderful composition - so calm.

  3. Ahhh, the tables keep turning! I remember when I said goodbye to summer and I enjoyed all the warmth from the other side of the world! That was cool to still enjoy summer when we were bundled up! Your images are so sweet and styled just perfectly cozy :) XO, Kelly

  4. Well Summer is on it's way here in Vegas.. I don't know if I am to excited about that at all.. 110 degree weather.. Nope not looking forward to it..

    Your photos look amazing. I just love that last shot..

    Hugs Linda

  5. A stack of books and fresh fruit ... sounds like a delightful way to spend the time in any season. After a very long winter and cold, wet spring I'm ready to welcome summer with open arms!

  6. Fantastic shots, your compositions have changed so much over the past few months. These are so good and tell such a great story of comfort with books, gloves and food. I have waited so long for summer, I don't envy you winter!

  7. Hi Simone, I have just found your blog through Lisa's Creative Exchange. I love your photos and your blog! This post is especially gorgeous! Beautiful photos, love the flowers and no doubt the cherries are from the US.
    I'm pleased to follow you, a fellow Australian.

  8. I always feel so serene and relaxed when I look at your photos. As always...I love every single one. My favorites are the last one with the cherries and the open book along the side.

    We're in opposite seasons. When I was freezing cold, I'd look at your summer photos and practically drool over the sand and the water. Now, it's hot here, and it's cold where you are. I wish I could send you some of our heat. It's a little too hot right now. I can't go outside without "melting."

  9. Great pics, glad you added your link to Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays!

  10. Hi Simone,
    Here we are in BC trying to get some summer as spring has been non existant here...Thank you for your lovely comments in my jewelry..I so enjoy making it..
    I love your post today, your photos are so heart warming.I have Chris Maddens book as well!

  11. Hi Simone, I love this post! I forget about where you live, and that winter is starting! It's fun to come over for a visit and see gloves, books and other cozy's a bit windy today, but still in the 80's. I would love to see some more "winter" posts from you! :-)

  12. We're complaining about the heat up here. Makes me miss winter—almost. Winter is the best time to catch up on reading. Of course, being confined to the house is also a good way to play catch up. Read anything you would like to recommend?

  13. A new follower here. :) What beautiful pictures you have captured. It's great to see where your from. My fiance and I are honeymooning in Australia next June. :)
