Wordless Wednesday – 3 May 2017

It’s Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world. The seasonal differences within our huge country never cease to amaze me.  Just a week ago I was up north in Brisbane in Qld where autumn was not evident at all.  It was a pleasant 25 degrees during the day and no autumnal colours were on show. I returned home…

Mothers day classic run

Mother’s Day Classic 2016

It was raining, it was cold but it was definitely fun.  We joined hundreds of people in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park for the 2016 Mother’s Day Classic,  all of us raising funds for Breast Cancer Research.

Morning has broken

Weekly Photo challenge: (Morning has) broken 

A different take on finding beauty in something broken – here’s my glasshouse/sunroom welcoming the start to a new day on a cold and frosty morning. I also want to re-use my favourite droplets of dew photo from my recent post  – just because I love it so much and because it fits in with my morning has broken theme for this week’s…

Droplets of Dew – Changing seasons 05

While having breakfast this morning, I looked outside and saw these droplets of dew sparkling in the early morning sunshine.  I felt compelled to walk out onto the wet dewy lawn to take some photos even though it meant I would be late for work!
