Lake Hinds is a nearby Salt Lake which we visited recently. A still day provided some useful pics to share on Weekend Reflections

Our recent visit to New Zealand was mainly for hubby to catch up with his family. Catching up with some meant a visit to the Dargaville Cemetery, which has this wonderful view over the rolling hills. It is such a picturesque resting place. As he was paying his respects to various people I went off to photograph fences and sky, ever mindful that it would provide some material for FF or Skywatch.
This fence separates the cemetery from cow paddocks

Our bush is colouring up beautifully now. Here are a few more varieties of wildflowers that I have come across close to home. Unfortunately I don't know the names of them all.
Prickly Grevillea (Black Toothbrush)
Wheatbelt Tea Tree

This collection of murals come from Dalwallinu, a small country town about 80 klms from us. Mostly they depict the early settlers of the area, which is farming and wheat growing but wildflowers, mainly wattles, are fast becoming a major tourist attraction for the town. There is a wonderful wattle festival on there soon.
I felt like moving the seat so that I could get the whole mural, but thought better of it.
This mural provides privacy behind the gates.

The canola crop in the distance is being reflected on the salt lake.

All is not as it seems with this pic. I have driven past this little church at Korrongonning (try saying that 10 times quickly) many times without taking a pic for Fridays Fences. Last week I stopped and I must say how disappointed I was. Here was I thinking white picket fence, wood of course. Not so, it is actually a white plastic picket fence. It suddenly lost some of it's appeal.

This mural is painted on the Railway Station at Wongan Hills. Due to more and more freight being carted by road, we see and hear very few goods trains passing our way nowdays.

Good rains in the last couple of weeks has seen the countryside burst into colour. Blues, whites, creams, pinks and of course yellows, which is great for todays meme. These are but just a few from my walk this morning. I don't know too many botanical names though.

I have green vegetable overload. Although I told my neighbours they could help themselves to my garden while I was away, they didn't. I get the impression that they don't like broccoli or silverbeet too much. I set about picking broccoli, silverbeet and cabbage today. Some of the broccoli I blanched and then froze for later use. I made spinach and ricotta cheese pastries as well as broccoli and leek soup. It gave me a great sense of achievement to be cooking and using my own produce. There is plenty more to come, time for tomatoes, potatoes, beans and sweet corn to be planted

This pic was taken a short while ago. No need to look further for my contribution to Skywatch or Fridays Fences as they are both covered in this pic taken from my front yard

Here's a fun pic for today's fence , taken in New Zealand when we were there last year. I personally would not like to be feeding this fella. Thankfully there was fence between me and him, not that he wouldn't be able to just step over it. It wasn't until I got closer to him I realised he was standing on a table. A beautiful Great Dane.. We are off to NZ again on Sunday for a short trip so hopefully will find some good fences to share.
