Miss Penelope....







Once again I've been absent from my blog....sigh! I know I've been a really lazy blogger just lately, but sometimes life just gets in the way and you have to go with the flow.....


so I'm back to introduce you to Miss Penelope Kathleen.........




..our 10th grandchild and 7th granddaughter.....




isn't she adorable? 
I haven't actually met her yet as she's over in Western Australia and I'm 4000 kilometres away in Victoria....
I'll meet her in three weeks when I fly over there and I just can't wait....

Meanwhile ......I've been stopping on the way to work in the mornings to take photographs of the ice. 




the nights have been freezing but the days amazingly mild for the middle of winter the cows were steaming...



...the grass frozen...








the roses still blooming with a frosty coating...












beautiful, magical, crystals of ice....





frozen landscapes that herald a bright sunny winters day....





















and amazing sunsets to put us to bed...

Congratulations on your new grandchild! I know you can't wait to meet her! Your pictures are stunning. Wow!! I wish we could have some of that cool weather here right now -- too hot and humid here. But it feels cooler looking at your pictures.

First, and most importantly, your new granddaughter is BEAUTIFUL!! What a blessing ;-)

Secondly ... reading your blog from Northern Michigan (USA) where the summers are usually nice with breezes ... we're having a HEAT WAVE with temps in the 90's at 10 a.m. in the morning!! This is most unusual so your "frosty" pictures were an added treat to reading your post. Linda

Congratulations on your gorgeous new addition to the family! Another leaf on the tree? Your photos are amazing, brrrr but amazing. It's such strange Winter weather isn't it? Today is supposed to be 21 here!! Don't they know it's Winter??!!

Stunning images of your ice covered mornings - we are melting in 90 degree heat....

Most stunning though is your precious new granddaughter - #10 - you are blessed! I sometimes don't remember how wide the Australian continent is - 4000 kms is a far piece when that little sweetheart is calling!
