SkyWatch - Winter Weather


Grey skies
fading light . . . rain 
tree breaking wind 


over yonder far away hill
a touch of colour


that has the power to banish 
the winter blues


Whatever your weather
have a great day!

Wild Bird Wednesday - Kookaburra


A puffed up, very cold Kookaburra
hoping for a handout


field mice are in their burrows and
the snakes he likes as a take-away
are too cold to show their faces
poor old kookaburra

OUR WORLD - Wonders of the Forest


A picnic in the forest
with glowing red Amanitas


a basket of delicious pine mushrooms


and best of all,
three blond beauties in pink


A very special day for me indeed.

TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Iceland Poppies


A little while ago
I put in a patch of poppies . . .


after enjoying their winter jewelled coats,


they grew tall 
and unfolded their silken petals


winter winds quickly stripped them bare
to show off their golden hearts


they are so pretty from every angle


and provide sustenance to bees and butterflies
when not much else is around.

SkyWatch - Cloud Overload


The darkness is lifting, two weeks
in bed with a virus???

A good book, Viggo Mortensen, maybe
but a VIRUS??? Just not my style.


Eyesight still not up to scratch
so visiting is limited


These were all taken one early morning 
from just about the same spot in my garden


first shot is East, second West
and the above is straight up.


North-west


South

  
North


and one of the peacocks getting in on the action.

Stay well and be happy!

OUT WORLD - Pollution


Pea soup in Singapore


the same in Hong Kong


and even on the Great Wall in a remote area.
Sorry, I could not find the ones of people wearing 
smog masks in Beijing.


If you think this is bad, think of me with my lungs blocked and 
my barely functioning heart not coping well at all.

No, I'm not exposed to pollution here on the farm, those shots
are from our trip to China 12 years ago.

I'm just sick as a dog with some dreaded lurgie.

It looks like I shall make a strategic retreat for a while
and take to my bed.

TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Snippets from my Garden


On a misty winter morning,
the Wallflowers and 'Hot Lips' Sage
are taking over the path


looking through the last of the cherry tomatoes
at a riot of parsley and oak leaf lettuce


up close and personal with one of my little bliss bombs
they have been uprooted recently but all the 
little green tomatoes are colouring up nicely.


and the last of my roses


but who knows???


Today the sun shines
and I'm out the door to do some weeding.
