Snow day

Further to Angie's comment on the post, below: I can confirm the blossoms in Hobart are backed by snow on the mountain.

The snow melted the day before I went down to Hobart a couple of weeks ago. The day after I left it snowed again. Was so sad to miss it.

Musn't let my son see these photos, he has been nagging me to go to the snow for weeks now. We don't ski (sadly) so a trip to snow feels like a monumental effort for not quite enough reward.

But that does look like fun!

It´s funny seeing the snow when we spent the day in the sun. I sat and had a picnic with 2 other Australians in the backyard while the children jumped on the trampoline. When I read your blog, everything seems so near as I relate and enjoy it so much, but little things like this remind me that I really am on the other side of the world.

Lovely - I can feel that icy wind ripping down the Mountain, chilling my bones as I walk through Salamanca on my way home to Battery Point (stopping for something warm at Knoppwoods)... Those were the days.

Lovely pics Kris. I love Nell's rosy nose!

Makes me want my hot water bottle though. Brrr! Though Mt Wellington was my favourite part of Hobart.

Very jealous. I am a "suffering" Sydneysider in that I love the snow and hate the humidity. Now, how to get my husband to relocate to Tasmania - maybe in retirement!

Lovely pictures of you and your family.
