Winter Winds

The last few days we have been battered by very cold winds blowing up from the Southern Alps and across from the Blue Mountains which have also had some snow.  Here on the coast we are relatively warm if you call a maximum of 14deg C warm and that doesn't take the wind chill factor into account.
Anyway we do get some nice colours to compensate a little.For example these two types of the bamboo family, the Black Bamboo with nice red berries and the Nandina bush with lovely red leaves that stay on the bush all year round but colour up in the cold weather.
