Winter Wednesday Theme

Well I know it's Friday, not Wednesday, but it's been a bit of a busy week.  So, rather than miss out I'm posting my Winter themed photo now.

Hazel has a lovely Winter Wednesday theme on her blog which I'd encourage you to join.  I think it's a nice way of sharing the different kinds of winters we are involved in - some more extreme than others! 
I took this photo just 10 minutes ago - beautiful clear blue skies after a cold and gloomy day yesterday.

Thought I'd get the firewood in early as have a busy afternoon today. Our winters here in Qld are not extreme by any means (I know what you're going to say you Southeners! I know!).

However, even after all these years of having a fireplace, it's still a bit of a thrill to be able enjoy a fire on a cool night.

Cheers for now - Wendy

We are just coming into 'Summer' here in England but our Spring has been very warm. Lovely in some ways but now parts of the country have a Hosepipe ban on them.

We try and collect fire wood all year to use in our Multi-fuel burner.

Nelly - yes we have had a bit of a cold snap eh! 12 deg. You can't beat the fireplace on a cold rainy day.

Daff - we seem to have days like that a lot lately too. Beaut blue skies in the morning, clouding over in the afternoon.

Andrea - Welcome! thanks for your comment. We are spoilt here and 5 deg would be very unusual.

SFT - the weather is def changing a bit isn't it. How does the multi-fuel burner work? Wood and what else?
