Hammad’s Weekend Sky #54
Hammad had a little surprise for us this weekend and I thought I should as well for it’s Hammads birthday. I don’t have any cake or a lavish meal but I do have a surprise ending, not my normal weekend sky photo. Neither is my normal sky song. Happy birthday Hammad. Everyone can sing and dance….c’mon!!
Yesterday afternoon the electricity went out and stayed out until this afternoon. As it was dark and I had enough of trying to read by candlelight, I went to be quite early. As a result I awoke at around 3am. I found my tablet and decided to go through the comments and read others posts. Seeing that the sky was clear, I thought the morning photos may have some colour. I lay down again at around 5am and didn’t wake until almost 9am.
These are the usual photos, just a bit later than normal. As you can see the sun is a bit higher in the sky and the clouds have returned
The sky has given the photos almost a monochrome feel
OK, so you are still wondering where my surprise for Hammad is for his birthday. Well while I was in the sun room I noticed a glow on the horizon and I thought the sun was coming up. But no it was the moon so for the first time, here is a morning moon through the trees photo for Weekend Sky.

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge January Alphabet: The Letter V Anywhere in the Word
Jump in and let’s get going
We can look at some leaves
Find an Ivory Curl flower with a bee inside
Beautiful Violas – just one
or we can see a bunch
We will have to look hard to find a couple of Stingless Native Bees hard at work in the Clivia flowers
The Zinnia flower attracts a Hover Fly just over there
I wonder where that Weevil is going don’t you?
Back outside, let’s go to the bird bath where we can see an Olive-backed Oriel
Over there, a Bar-shouldered Dove on the fence post
and up there, a Peaceful Dove is sitting on that branch
It looks like a Varied Sittella is nearby as well
Make sure you look lower among the bushes as that’s where you can find a Variegated Fairy Wren
and nearby an Emerald Dove enjoys a bit of sunshine
Thanks for joining me in my tour around, I hope you can feel the love
