A new me or an upgraded version?

Isn’t it interesting how you can read a post and all the accompanying comments and get a real feel for people and their situation?  I love blogging for that very reason. Since retiring I have made contact with many other middle aged bloggers who are in much the same boat as I am.  It’s been enlightening and so encouraging to…

Hibiscus flower

Earthly gifts

Earth  The earth is what we all have in common.  Wendell Berry I love this yellow hibiscus flower which opened up fully for the first time this morning in mum’s garden. It’s a small plant, in a pot, and has just this one flower (so far). I think it’s so beautiful,  I’ve declared today Happy Hibiscus Friday! I’m reminded that…

Surprise is the prompt for this week’s photo challenge. As Jen H says: Much of photography is about discovery, and with discovery may come a surprise.   We are asked to share a surprise, as seen through the lens.  I’m away from home at the moment and while out on a walk through a suburban park, I came across the remains of…
