STIRRINGS OF SPRING

A typical late Winter's day in Melbourne with a very cold morning and then some sunshine alternating with showers and rain in the evening. We were able to go for a walk around noon and we caught some of the sun. At the Darebin Parklands we saw evidence that Spring is not far away at all!
