Metamorphosis

Brisbane has been shivering for the past few days. Our winters are usually so mild that it's a bit of a shock to the system. Thursday morning I woke up at 4:45 for our hill session and it was 13.5C. That was the warmest it got all day. The nights have been cold and may have involved some sharing of body warmth just for practical purposes.

So when I woke up the other morning and saw little white patches all over our back lawn (okay, the term lawn is used fairly loosely here. It's more like a back weed bed) the first thing I thought of was SNOW!

Only problem with that is IT NEVER SNOWS IN BRISBANE. Not ever!!

Maybe frost?

The only way to find out for sure was to go for a closer inspection. So I rugged up and faced the brisk morning air to find these





And what are they? This last pic shows what it is before metamorphosis.



Who'd have thought that a dog turd could look so pretty and delicate?!

  10. Hmmm...first post I've seen with pics of dog poo. I don't think I have ever thought of it as pretty.

    Enjoy the nice weather.

  12. I can tell you don't ever have snow in Brisbane.
    But this is really strange looking. I would say pretty if not for the fact that I know what it is.
    BTW, 13C is NOT cold. ;)
