We are literally in the throes of winter here in the southern hemisphere. Its cold out and most often cold indoors too in our homes built for hot summers and glaring sunshine.

I have to admit that winter isn’t my favourite time of year but as I get older I have begun to appreciate it more and look for the wonder in it. There is a point in summer where I look forward to the winter chill, wrapping a woollen scarf around my neck and popping a cute little hat on my head before venturing outdoor. And living in Sydney provides me easy access to far cooler climates, the Blue Mountains, Mudgee, Canberra, Southern Highlands to name but a few.

I am yet to see snowfall in Australia but I have seen it when living and travelling overseas.

Here are some gorgeous snow covered gardens and winter plant pictures. I hope they bring a smile to your face, warm your spirit and help you to see the beauty that winter really does bring to our neighbourhoods (even if it doesn’t snow where you are!).
