Winter, I feel we need to say good bye. With many days of grey skies, a heavy head cold and the last few days of rain and storms, I am beginning to wonder when winter will wrap itself and when spring will truly begin. Walking today I saw confused signs of the new season - wind scattered blossoms, wet, bursting seed pods and this beautiful crimson gum leaf. With the end of winter come another change - my daughters 13th birthday on Monday. A little more on that next week.
