The other afternoon I noticed the moon out in the sky. It got me thinking how no matter where you are in the world you will see the Moon and hopefully the sun. Which also got me thinking that while I was pondering the marvel of the day time vision of the moon, someone on the opposite side of our planet was witnessing the moon at night.
WAS IT YOU??
I hope so.
I might be back at work but I still have Monday and Friday to myself. Last Friday I drove out to Dawns place to make my pet tomb stones, and catch up with my friend of course. She has made these gorgeous blokes called 'Bird Men'. They are going to be fabulous when cooked and coloured.
This is a block totem and it is amazing! So much detail on each piece, and this I also cannot wait to see when finished. I promise to share if I manage to time my next visit for it's completion.
Yesterday, Monday, I drove out to Sue Ws place. Her son and hubby have been busy creating the best deck ever. It is half done so we sat up stairs with the doors wide open enjoying the cool breeze and the gorgeous view.
Her garden looks grand from this height too. When the deck is finished it is going to be an amazing space to relax on, which I am sure we will do.
Every time I drive in the country I see how the maize crops are growing. Paddock after paddock are full of this stuff, all growing tall, reaching for the sun. I have enjoyed watching it go from ploughed land, to planted, to growing. Harvest will be next.
On my daily visit to the girls to exchange food for eggs I am surrounded by the sound of happy birds in the garden. A sound I very much enjoy.
During one of these visits I noticed movement in the plum tree. There were plenty of feasting feathered friends, and among them was this mother and baby Wax Eye. TOFs plums were getting hammered!!
After dinner the other night TOF got his ladder out and he picked as many plums as he could reach. They are ripening fine inside and apart from eating them I have enough to make jam. They are so tasty, but I fear if I eat too many I may get stuck in the powder room powdering my nose for longer than I want to powder it.
I love the world in Macro!
One day I shall invest in a good Macro lens.
Sunflower super close.
The funny thing is, when I was young I loved flicking through the pages of my dads National Geographic Magazines. I dreamed of being a photographer back then, what an amazing job that would have been. Instead I share my nature shots with you lot!! And that is more than enough for me. I wouldn't mind being able to shed my skin ever so often like a Cicada, wonder if you get weight loss with this?
I made another collage poster which I have hung on the wall in our dining room. I think our loo needs one now.
Need some giggles,
well here we go...
