Technically, here in the southern hemisphere we are two weeks into spring, but it sure doesn’t feel like that today!  In honour of today’s chilly weather, I present an appropriately wintery picture from my last trip to Canada.  I arrived in time for the first snow-storm of the season – quite a shock for an Aussie who had never seen snow lying on the ground before.  But despite the weather, there were still a few hardy souls braving the elements, including this lone figure trudging her way home through Major’s Hill Park.
