Bubble Bath Explosion

The Lens-Artists photo challenge #17: Just For Fun

What happens when you are having a romantic evening and decide to have a bubble bath? What happens when you set up the bathroom with candles and scent? What happens when you put in the bubble bath stuff? What happens if you turn on the spa jets?

This!!!

What happens when you have two people who always see the funny side of life? What happens when the two people have a bit of an artistic side? What happens to a bubble bath when an artist finds inspiration? What happens when the photographer sees the image and lighting?

Today in the Garden

The word prompt for the photo challenge from Leanne Cole: Flowers

The Brunsfelsia are flowering and this little grasshopper is enjoying the sun

I could go on and on with Grevillea flowers but here is just a couple. A new planting from a few years ago has a lovely pink flower.

A standard Grevillea, Robin Gordon, is one the birds love.

The Hippeastrums are in flower and are a delight of colour scattered about the garden.

The Stingless Native Bees love gathering the pollen from the Hippeastrums 181101_blog challenge_flowers_hippeastrum_stingless_native_bees

In a pot at the front verandah, a Native Frangipanni’s scent drifts into the house. The flowers start as white and as the get older become yellow.

Meet Gus

The Tuesday word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Slippery

I have been thinking of what can I post that is slippery. I know I have quite a few snake photos but as usual I wanted to do something different. Anyway it would be hard to “compete” with Franks fabulous snake photo. (the model is OK as well).

So without further to do – meet Gus

Gus is an Axolotl or Mexican Walking Fish, although he is not a fish but an amphibian. I inherited Gus from my daughter when she moved into her new property and didn’t have room or the right conditions to have Gus. 181101_blog challenge_slippery_gus1

Cheerful looking little bloke isn’t he?

Of all the Spiders in my garden, the Golden Orb Weaver is spectacular with a rather messy web

Other Spiders webs are well constructed. This one with a golden glow of the morning
