Down Under Easter is NOT on spring.

It wasn't until I published my post last night that I realised my Ash Wednesday post also featured a storm.

I have struggled with Lent this year. And it's just clicked how much the weather may have affected that.

With Lent sandwiched both ends with wild and woolly weather, and a filling in between of weeks of overcast drizzly days, perhaps that goes some way to explaining my current feelings.

The northern hemisphere dominates Easter themes.  There's no nodding daffodils, fluffy chicks, warming days heading towards summer inspiring hope happening around here. Instead its cold and miserable,  the days are getting shorter and we have a long winter ahead of us to get through.

Time to stoke up the fire and hunker down with hot cross buns to ride out yet another storm.


  1. This part of the northern hemisphere had a dump of snow yesterday, and is expecting some more Good Friday!

  2. I hope you don't mind that it does make me feel a little bit better!

  3. Not at all! South of us in Calgary and Banff they had about 10 cm today, we had about 3 or 4 I think.
