Skywatch Friday

I almost missed this magnificent sky on Tuesday night if not for a glimpse out the back door at just the right time. Tea was on the table but I just had to run and get the camera and head across the road for a better view down our street. Had no time to change settings but these colours are  close to true.

Weekend Reflections

This tranquil spot at Noble Falls is one of our favourite pit stops when returning from a trip to Perth. Tuesday was no exception, and  with more water flowing from the heavy rain last weekend.

A Touch Of Orange

Not a lot has been happening in my part of the world, but that's okay, that's the way I like it. The sky still has the ability to put on a show worthy of capture and my old rose bush out the front has these  wonderful  orange coloured blooms, they do however only last a day or two before they fade into insignificance. I visited the 52 Photo Project blog and the theme for this week is ORANGE so please enjoy my sky and rose.

Bobtail Goanna

Meet Gordon, he is a  baby Bobtail Goanna who has made himself at home in my garden. They say goannas are territorial so I guess he is here to stay. I am extra vigilant now when I start weeding around bushes and shrubs. They are mostly harmless but can bite if provoked. I first saw him 2 weeks ago and yesterday he was on the path but soon took for cover again when the camera came out.

Rubbish Tuesday

This old garden seat was hidden under layers of blue plumbago and bottle brush when we first moved into our house. It wasn't discovered till hubby took to the jungle. Although old and weathered and seen better days, I have kept it in the front garden.  The odd coat of linseed oil is keeping it presentable. I don't advise guests to sit on it, but on occasions, when out in the garden and needing a breather, I do, being careful though.

Ready for repairs

A shady nook in the garden, the windmill too has had a spruce up and a few running repairs

Last night it looked quite ominous from the back view, dark clouds passing by, some rain in the air hopefully. No, not to be.  Out to the front of the house was this part rainbow in the clearing sky.
