Rosebud about to open in my garden

Wordless Wednesday: Rosebud

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday As I’ve said many times before, I really enjoy spring time when the garden slowly but surely comes alive. I will openly admit here that I do very little to enable this to happen and all garden credit goes to my hardworking husband. In case you didn’t know, I’ve been trying…

Wordless Wednesday: Mother and daughter fun

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday There’s actually not too many words I can write about this one, as the photo seems to speak for itself! I have only just found this picture of my eldest daughter and myself, (from our time in Fiji), and had to chuckle at our shenanigans – we always manage to have…

Wordless Wednesday: Tulip time

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday I always enjoy spring time when my tulips appear every year without fail. I do nothing to encourage them, they just keep appearing.

Sunset in Fiji

Worth a Word Wednesday: A Fijian sunset

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday Bula! Our final night in Fiji was bittersweet. The sunset on our final night in Fiji was spectacular, which sums up our whole trip really!! It was paradise.  The sunset was glorious but saying goodbye to our daughters was hard. We all live so far apart we don’t get many chances…

View through the window on a sunny spring day

What’s outside the window?

This morning the view from the kitchen window was sunny and bright so I thought I’d share it with you. The vase of spring daffodils look pretty, WonderWoman Debs is sitting on top of her jar of Vegemite surveying the world around her, the camellia tree is full of pretty pink flowers outside in the garden and all is well. …

Blue sky on a spring day

Worth a Word Wednesday: Blue skies above

 Wordless Wednesday – has been renamed ‘Worth a Word’ Wednesday simply because I couldn’t stick to the rules of NO WORDS 🙂 This is the beautiful clear blue sky above me on a warm spring day.  If you look really closely there’s a black dot up there which was a helicopter flying overhead. I never get tired of the blue sky. …

River gum along the Frome River in South Australia's Flinders Ranges

Aussie outback adventure #4 – Mt Serle

Walking the Frome River – Day 4 Today saw our little group of five (we call ourselves the Famous Five) walk from Mt Serle homestead, down the Frome River, with our cultural guide Cliff Coulthard.

Aussie outback adventure #3 – a cultural day

Welcome to Iga Warta – Day 3 full of culture and history  Nangga (pronounced nunga) means hello/welcome in the local Adnyamathanha (pronounced Udna-mat-na) language. We are learning lots of words for plants, animals and birds, as we go on our walks with guides Sharpie, Cliff and Terry.  It’s been very enlightening and educational not to mention interesting. The good news…

Scribbly Gums In the Australian bush are very special trees

Worth a Word Wednesday: Scribbly Gums

 Wordless Wednesday – has now been renamed ‘Worth a Word’ Wednesday simply because I can’t stick to the rules of NO WORDS 🙂 Theses magnificent trees deserve to have some words written about them.  Can you see the scribbles on them?  They are found in the bush near where where my husband grew up in Nowra on the South Coast of…

Forest tracks on a winter's day in Tumbarumba

Worth a Word Wednesday: the tracks of my life

 Wordless Wednesday – winter and the tracks of my life No more ‘jealousy/wish you were here’ shots of beaches from me for the moment, I’m back home into full-on winter mode – it’s wet, grey, cold and just a tad miserable outside. These tracks are throughout the forest at the rear of our property and over the years my husband has…
