Patches of Blue

Today I saw the sky
and a sultry sun.  
Yesterday's fungi shrivelled,
 and there were butterflies everywhere.

I hope all is well with you in this weird limbo time between Christmas and New Year.  I do love to hear from people so please leave a comment if you want to.

Silver Lining

It has rained and rained and rained.  The damp is relentless and under the house is flooded including my work room.  But the fungi are AMAZING.  Here are some photos from the walk Lily and I went on this morning:

I hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas break.

Cyclists and Sunsets

I made this haiku ages ago but didn't have an appropriate photo to go with it.... which is odd considering the number of lycra-clad cyclists that frequent the road along the river here....

Swarms of shouting cyclists
make ripples
in the molecules of morning

I just love fungi, and it abounds in these parts and causes me to appreciate the macro function on my camera even more.....

And one can't go past a dandelion:

Kezia and Lily and I headed up the nearest hill to try and catch the lunar eclipse last night.  The mosquitoes and hunger drove us away before we caught the eclipse but the sunset was awesome.

Some Pictures

Here are a few of the photos I've taken this last week or so.

This ibis found itself right out of its comfort zone:

The urban equivalent of crop circles:

I hope your weekend has been peaceful.

Thinking of the folk in WA and other parts of Australia who are dealing with flood at the moment.

Kipping Cats and other Curiosities

A visitor to my yard yesterday.  Give it a click and make it bigger.... you know you want to.

A couple of pages from one of my journals:

I made some room on my table for....... (ha, you thought I was going to do something creative didn't you?!)

.......the tiger, of course....  I'm no match for her so I go turn the fan up in the bedroom (it was a hot day today) and think I may have a little lie down instead, leave for a moment to fill my glass of water and.... voila!

She even got her foster brother in on the action this time! I foiled any further evil plans concocted by the tiger by heading off to the Design Studio Pop-Up Christmas Market where I bought some lovely Washi Tape from the  n o o k  stall.

 So, as you can see, ultimately a good Saturday was had by all.  I hope yours was just as good!

Speaking of Birds

I think this bird....

Has been spending way too much time with this bird....

Kezia sneaks off with my camera every now and then to take photos of the sunset through our windows:

I saw this today, another spiral:

Tomorrow is Friday, I hope yours is wonderful!
