Last week we bought about half a ton of tiles and guess who
had a flat tyre as soon as they were loaded up???
your's truly was checking out others for our verandah . Had to be
traditional since our house was built in the 1850's. After the 1983
bushfires only the walls still stood but they were the oldest walls
on Mt.Lofty so the tiles need to have the same look.
house, here are some shadows from our wild wood on the
All photos enlarge as usual.
To stand in a shadow or out in the sun and look at one, go to
Tracy at Hey Harriet and enjoy some cool shadows.
Glad that you were able to get the tyre fixed and yes, that is something that could have easily happened to me, got to giggle afterwards. The tiles are lovely, yet I most certainly agree, the woods, the trees for me, so much serenity in nature. Have a great weekend Arija~ReplyDelete
Lovely trio of shadows! Lucky you to have your Prof to pump your tires...looks like a lot of work with the hand pump. Pretty tiles!ReplyDelete
Wow, Arija;) those tiles are beautiful. Imagine living in a house that old. You certainly are blessed. And then to be so close to the woods and nature. That't the life for me. Have a blessed weekend, JoReplyDelete
Nice tiles...and that forest really is lovely. Too bad about the flat tire.ReplyDelete
I will always prefer nature to cities in spite of the fact I live in the middle of a large one. Glad you got the tire fixed! Love your shadow shots for the day and the tiles are so beautiful! Enjoy your weekend, Arija!ReplyDelete
Arija.. isn't that always the way!! Murphy's Law..ReplyDelete
I LOVE the tiles.. they are going to be perfect.
What nice views, although the flat tyre is a shame to have to fix - but the tile work did need to commence! The tile is exquisite, a classic look that always wears well!ReplyDelete
each shot is really interesting with the different types of shadow patterns...ReplyDelete
I like the shadows on the tile but yes, it is the tress that sing to my soul.ReplyDelete
Nice shadows of 'hard work'' - great acution shot!ReplyDelete
What a pain to have a flat tyre with a full load! I like the tiles you chose - how hard it must have been to build up again from the bare walls.ReplyDelete
Your wild wood looks stark in your photo but as the canopy develops it will soon soften.
Ohhh that photo with the shadows, beautiful. Found my way here from Gwen's blog...ReplyDelete
The tile are wonderful, you will post when project is finished, eh...ReplyDelete
I so enjoy wandering your outback, the flowers look like so many we have here in the states, I can almost smell the lilacs, one of my faves...have a wonderful Spring week ahead...enjoy it for me!
What a great series of shadow shots. Beautiful tiles..ReplyDelete
I approve of the verandah tiles, and sigh, thinking of the oldest walls on the Sunshine Coast which are barely older than me!ReplyDelete

Wonderful! I love the tile. I really do. I'm with you on rather living in a forest...ReplyDelete
Isn't that the way - you wouldn't have a flat if it was empty!ReplyDelete
Lovely shadows, especially of the woods!
Sorry about that flat tire!ReplyDelete
I really like the tiles! And the shadow on the tiles and in the woods.
Half a ton of tiles!ReplyDelete
I could play all day in the shadows of that forest. Reminds me of a Ansel Adams scene. Beautiful!
kisses to you
Love love love the wild wood shadows! Yes, it would be lovely to live in a forest!ReplyDelete
Now that is some crazy bad luck about the flat tyre! Or maybe it wan't luck but the load of tiles contributed to the flattening of the tyre. Poor Prof! Doesn't look fun!
Have a great week ahead :)
What unfortunate moment to have a flat tyre! The veranda tile floor looks as if it had been there forever, beautiful!ReplyDelete
Lovely shot of the bird and the trees are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Those tiles are fantastic! Love them - and with that load, we believe there would have been a flat! Enjoyed the shadows of the trees....love how the shadows and the branches all blend together making a neat picture!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your week!
Ha! what a wonderful shot you got here. Luv the 2nd one.ReplyDelete
A fab tiles... Hope you share the finish product later.
Lovely! I especially like the shadows on the tile shot. A lot going on there!ReplyDelete
I want to see the final outcome. I love tile work! Tsup! Tsup!ReplyDelete
dear Arija, I had the same tiles in the opposite colours for a gardenterrace(the big ones are white, the small ones are red!) I like them very much! your floor looks very pretty ... enjoy it!ReplyDelete
What beautiful tires....so sorry about the flat...why does that always happen when it is most annoying...love your tree shadows...ReplyDelete
