What does WINTER mean?

Hi Peeps,

I have been extremely busy at the moment and haven't had a chance to get a page completed for this great challenge so I thought I would get you all thinking.........

What does winter mean to you?

For Miss Annette, Mrs B and Super Mum Kim in Orange I know winter is freezing for them and it snows

For me up here in supposed sunny QLD we get frosts and horrendous chilling winds. I found some information on trusty ole google about weather in Toowoomba

Toowoomba has a temperate climate with warm summers and cool winters and it enjoys four distinct seasons.Compared to most of Queensland, the town is cooler, mainly because of its high elevation.
Daily maximum temperatures in Toowoomba average 27 °C (81 °F) in summer and 16 °C (61 °F) in winter.According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the highest temperature ever recorded in Toowoomba was 39.3 °C (102.7 °F), while the lowest was −4.4 °C (24.1 °F). Winter temperatures seldom go below freezing; however in a situation unique among Queensland cities, snow has been reported on the higher parts of the city on rare occasions. Light frost will be experienced several nights each winter in the city centre, more often in the western suburbs.

Looks beautiful but let me tell you - you don't want to step outside - the locals have not named the town "POOWOOMBA" for no reason.
And as for Julene - well sadly enough I have no idea where she lives or what it is like in winter ( That makes me a bad friend hey?)
So where do you live? And what does winter mean to you?
All I can say is " Thank heaven's for spring:)"

Singing in the Rain

Miss Annette's challenge this month was to do a layout with the word rain or cold in it. I struggled with this for awhile as the only songs I could think of were all quite dramatic, like November Rain. Anyway I finally decided on Singing in the Rain, and I hope the music clip puts a smile on your face, I don't think you could watch it and not feel happy :)

and this is my layout

Hope to see a few of you join in this month
Happy days

Hazy Shade of Winter

Well here we are the second day of Spring, how awesome and beautiful it has been, would be nice if the Hazy days of Winter were behind us. Here at Scrap that Song I set the Challenge to scrap a page incorporating the words "Winter" or "Cold" they could be in the lyrics or the song title. I have managed to do both by using the song Hazy Shade of Winter by Simon and Garfunkel as well as the lyrics "there's a patch of snow on the ground"

We got quite excited a few times this winter thinking that we would have some good falls of snow but unfortunately this is the best we got here in Orange town.

How will you use the words? Would love to see, come play, till then.
Hugs and love
Annette x
