Spring.. I almost missed it lll

 

I definitely missed the tulips at their peak this year during the Araluen Tulip Festival. By the time we got there in the second week of September the tulips were a bit like me, slightly past their best :) They were still very pretty though and I hope you enjoy my efforts to capture that. Final check up on Friday and I'm pretty sure all will be well, looking forward to catching up and getting back to regular posting. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe 🌷

Spring.. I almost missed it ll.

 

The countryside along the drive to Toodyay, 85km northeast of Perth at this time of the year is so pretty. Again I took these shots a few weeks ago just after the op, a trip I enjoy at the best of times even more so when I need a bit of cheering up. I love the comical expressions of the alpacas spotted in a field along the way, they were as curious about me as I was about them :) The wildflowers scattered about on each side of the country roads look tres charming don't you think, in a few months when summer sets in they will just be a memory until next year. Thank you for being so patient with me, I hope to get back to normal (?) and visit soon, happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

Spring.. I almost missed it.

 

...but not altogether :) I took the shots here at the beginning of September during this years Kings Park Wildflower Festival just after I had had the surgery on my eye. So many of the pics I took didn't make the cut for one blurry reason or another :) hopefully you will enjoy the mix of weird, wonderful and often hairy blooms that made the grade and that appear all over our beautiful landscape at this time of the year, the everlastings planted en masse are a joy to behold. Hope you are all well and happy, catch up soon. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

City Daily Photo Theme Day.. Winners.


 The theme for October for CDP'ers is winners, the delightful mini fashionista above was definitely a winner in the style stakes at the Perth Zoo. Who could compete with those fab colour combinations and the swish of the flouncy skirt, too adorable. Had my three week eye check up yesterday, all going well, another three weeks until stitches properly dissolved but will do my best to start posting again, have lots to share but staring at the computer screen for long periods isn't much fun so please bear with me. Looking forward to seeing more 'winners' from around the world :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

Aye Aye Update..

 

Yup that's me, dazed and a wee bit disheveled :) Popped in to let you know I'm still here and that my eye is healing each day, by the end of this week hopefully all stitched will have dissolved. The best thing about having an excellent camera is that when you point it in the right direction it almost does the job for you. I have been out and about with friends see below taking lots of spring shots to share when I get back to posting each day, which will be next week with a bit of luck.. P still editing my wordage as things like 'tyos' can happen :) Hope you are all happy and well, see you soon, take care and stay safe..

Aye aye..

For the first time since I started the blog I have to have a proofreader, thanks P :) If you are wondering why I didn't post yesterday it was because at my regular eye check on Thursday last week it was discovered that the trabeculectomy I had on my right eye over ten years ago had developed a leak, the worry being infection getting behind the eye equals big problems. Anywho the result was immediate surgery, 30 stitches in the eyeball, I know right eeeew! The thing is until the stitches dissolve, roughly seven days, I can't see all that well, hence the proofreading. Didn't want you to worry, all is good I just have to call upon reserves of patience, very low :) and ride it out. Will see you when I can see you :) Take care and stay safe..

Winter blues..

 

Took these shots at Hillarys Boat Harbour last week when we were still officially in winter, it was slightly warmer then than it was yesterday in official spring with a top of 13C, the coldest spring day since.. whenever. The trees lit up in cool blue give as much of a wintry feel as we are going to get here in WA :) Hope you have a super weekend, happy Friday, take care and stay safe..
