July is our coldest month here in Melbourne, and looking around one can certainly appreciate we are in midwinter. However, all is not bleak! Splashes of colour become apparent when one looks closer. A patch of blue sky, amongst the denuded branches, a blooming, cheery yellow wattle, a bright, brick red toadstool, the warmth of an open fire...

This post is part of the Mosaic Monday meme,
and also part of the Blue Monday meme,
and also part of the Seasons meme.


  1. Oh, to think of winter! I know it will be hear before I'm ready, but I've just been so darn hot lately, I'm ready for cooler times. I love those mushroooms.

  2. Lovely!! That fire shot!! #Allseasons

  3. Nick - always good to find the silver linings. You illustrate it well! Thanks for bringing a little bit of winter to those in the Northern Hemisphere - many of us have been in a HOT HOT HOT heat wave! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  4. Winter...hard for me to wrap my brain around that word these days!! Lovely mosaic! :)

  5. There's something about bare branches that I find both intriguing and satisfying.
