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…

Is it possible to anticipate anticipation?  I like to think so. With summer holidays upon us and family members from near and afar preparing to gather, I am anticipating the anticipation of us all being together again for the first time in over a year.

Magnetic Poetry Saturday Challenge #7 – Garden

Over the weekend I was inspired to plant some bright colourful flowers in my sun-room/conservatory/hothouse/she-shed/glasshouse/orangery – call it what you will – and I marveled at the peace that one gets when digging, planting and creating something new.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge has Macro as the theme for this week. I’m very surprised at the quality and clarity that the humble phone can produce.  I didn’t do very much editing on this photo but did take quite a few shots trying to capture what I have dubbed ‘the tendrils’. I’m not quite sure if I’ve done this right but regardless,…

Every day is an adventure – 46/365

Yellow and fluffy Soft and pretty Golden delights in the green of the Australian bush. Wattle – the floral emblem that makes some people sneeze! Did you know that Wattle Day used to be September 1 but they moved it forward to August 1 because wattle started flowering earlier in various places.  This photo was taken in mid July so maybe no-one told…
