What looks like fog in this photo is actually a cloud rolling slowly through the yard. It's a beautiful thing to watch - swirls of mist rising, thickening, and then moving on. When you are standing in a cloud you can feel the fine, sweet dampness gently caressing your face. Breathing in the moisture-laden air is just heavenly, especially because the gums release their freshest fragrance when it rains.
Winter here can be chilly, but it has a kind of gentleness to it.
