Final Week in June - where did the first six months go????

Well, we have just had the Winter Solstice here, so that explains the end of June. Now the sunset will get latter and latter again, rather than occurring at 4.45 pm!  As part of the celebrations of the Dark Mo Fo Festival in Hobart, we had a mid-winter Solstice early morning nude swim - noooooo, I didn't enter - but nearly 700 hardy souls did swim in the Derwent for this event. Temp was about 4 degrees but apparently the water was warmer than the morning air! Still not tempted to enter...............

As you can see above we have had some lovely cold, frosty blue days but we have had a few wet and foggy ones too, and my usual photographer - who is much younger than me and much fitter as well - went walking on the Mountain above the city last week and took this shot!

Reminds me of the Hobbit!

Now, over to the crafty side of the blog.......

Remember, the theme is POCKETS and the twist is to add a crown!

I made a Joy Fold card

and Shylaashree made a pocket card also
Note that lovely quilling.....

  2. I've begun to look forward to the fab photos with each post Susan. The photography is amazing and would make great framed pictures. I can see what you mean about The Hobbit. Hugs W x
