Tree Square – Day #17
A few years ago in July (our winter) we had a fall of snow here in Tumbarumba.
I took this photo back then, of the front deck and paddocks beyond, and decided to share it here again, for my Day 17 photo for #TreeSquares. This particular tree has featured in quite a few of my #TreeSquare posts so far!
It’s trying to snow here again today and up higher in the hills the snowfalls have been quite heavy.
We live in Tumbarumba, in the Snowy Mountains of NSW, Australia, which are much different to the Blue Mountains, which are closer to Sydney. Our house is at just over 700 metres above sea level so we do get snow more often than some other places nearby.
Of course, we don’t get a lot of snow overall, compared to those in the Northern Hemisphere, but enough to be enchanted when it falls and a bit scared when having to drive anywhere (well, that’s me anyway). We also have lots of ski fields and in fact our total area for skiing is greater than many overseas. A lot of people don’t realise it even snows here in Aus!

I love the stark beauty of the snow and the peacefulness it brings to the world. We have snow forecast for the next few days and if it’s not snowing then it’s raining. Whatever, the temperature outside is cold!
Becky’s square theme for July is Trees – it’s a monthly challenge where she posts a square photo every day and she invites us all to join in, either daily or spasmodically as the whim takes us!
For those of you feeling the heat in the Northern Hemisphere, I hope my wintry shots offer you some relief.
PS: A brief apology (#sorrynotsorry) to some readers who may get tired of my extra posts and my photos of trees – but it’s a warm wintry welcome to my world! I have a lot of trees around my place so this is something I’m enjoying!
