This weeks photo challenge is Changing SeasonsIt’s the first week of December, and winter has definitely just arrived in Moscow!! Our first snow fall of the season lasted for 3 days and left the whole city covered in snow.

I went for an early morning walk through the newly snow covered streets of Moscow and even found some plants already covered by ice. It was a lovely day and only -6 degrees outside so actually quite warm compared to whats coming!!

The mention of winter in Moscow scares me as I know it is time for temperatures to drop to a chilly -10 degrees Celsius and it will keep on dropping till it reaches -35 in February. I come from sunny South Africa and anything below 0 degrees is freezing for me so I’m already wearing my warm winter coat and fur lined gloves!!
