Just a few shots of trees and rain to remind me what it looks like outside the lockdown walls. And now for the windfarm. Continue reading Trees and turbines et al.
The Australian eucalypt is commonly called a gum tree. Cut it, does it not bleed? Yes it bleeds a bright gum that can be used – depending upon the species – as a glue, a sweetie or a medicine. The other day a fellow blogger Simret https://slmret.wordpress.com/ posted a story about gum trees. She hails from somewhere a bit south of Los Angeles and, to … Continue reading Gum trees.
The first chance for CJ and me to go out together for a bit of a drive. Particularly when it was only 10C and the was a fair wind from the south west. (That’s where our cold comes from in the southern hemisphere.) But even more particularly because I wanted to show her something special. Up there about one third of the way in from … Continue reading Clouds and rocks and water
I want to tell you a true story that I made up a long time ago when I knew the difference between right and wrong.

Well I went for a short walk around the block and the sun didn’t shine most of the time so I stopped and waited ’til I got a bit of light. (Is that cheating? Or should I take the photo when it is dark and gloomy. After all the … Continue reading Autumn (Early)

I got a comment on my over the word limit history post from one of my recent followers that seemed to required some response. She commented; “Enjoyed your post, but hope you won’t give up photos of flowers or windmills.” And who am I to ignore anyone who makes a request. So below is neither a flower nor a windmill although it does have some … Continue reading Sculpted by the wind!
