Larking around..


It has been a bit of a two months for the family, apart from my eye surgery, much to come to grips with. I kind of lost my blogging mojo along the way but a concerned email from blogger pal in Toronto, thanks Pat, with the advice to look close to home for inspiration gave me the push to step into my garden yesterday to take a few shots of a family of visiting mudlarks aka magpie-larks. Not as flamboyant as the rainbow lorikeets and galahs I usually show, the black and white mudlarks are among my favourite visitors. Mum and dad below right keeping an eye on their youngsters as the cat that's not mine was relaxing with one eye open in the garden also :) If any CDP'ers reading this can let me know what the November theme day subject is I will use that as the return to daily blogging. Hope you are faring well in this crazy world we live in at the moment, take care and stay safe..

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..
