FOTD – March 3 – Golden Lycra

Cee’s Flower of the Day

I was talking to Jude about the flower Golden Lycra and I made another promise to her to show her some of the blooms that are flowering at the moment, scattered throughout the garden. There are another memory of Geoff who lived down the road. He had a bank at the rear of his place that every year was a sight to behold. He was always thinning out that garden bed, that’s why I have quite a number of flowering plants.

They are quite interesting as all through late winter until mid January I was watering the strap like leaves. Then abruptly the leaves die off and the flower stalks seem to magically appear soon followed bu magnificent flowers.

Firstly I would like to apologise for not just having one inspired image. I’ll see if slideshow works or not.

This series of a conversation that became rather heated at times. Sitting at the “bar” waiting for your friend to fly in. This is could be how they talked, maybe comparing flights or things they’ve seen. You can put your own conversation to the photos if you want.

It’s all white now

Last on the Card February 2021

Last month was another record breaker. Last on the Card January 2021 had 221 views with seventy-three likes so hopefully a lot of those people had a look at your fabulous last photos. I know some of you just can’t let go and have to do a bit to the photo. Really no one cares, this is all about fun. I don’t know what the last photo is most of the time mainly on my phone and small camera.

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 28th February.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo” or #LastOnTheCard

Softness falls and touches

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #137: Soft

Here is your soft tune to scroll through some images from my island home

A soft landscape at sunset

A soft cityscape through a rainy window

A blue landscape filled with mist

Our Moon and clouds during the day

A soft feather like moss cascading over a log

Just a feather I found

The beautiful Water Snowflake lilies that grow on my dam

The softness of a butterfly atop a flower

What’s in a name

The Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Magnificent

My besties small property is surrounded by a cattle farm. Many of my cattle photos are of the farmer next doors cattle. We were always in awe of a large black bull who sauntered around the paddocks, the other bull never seemed to mind or want to have anything to with him.

His ear tags have a lot of information coded into them. The numbers may mean the year of birth, a farm number some are herd identifiers as well as regulation ear tags. Well this big black bull has an ear tag with MM on it on one side. We wondered what name this magnificent creature had; that’s it! Mr Magnificent.

Here is Mr Magnificent just chilling in the warm sunshine on top of the hill. The MM is on the other side of the 2

One day the farmer was out walking the paddocks with a dog or two just checking on fences and going to move the temporary electric fence so the cows had a new pasture before calving. Of course we had a good old chat with Julie and I mentioned the big black bull as he was waiting first in line to get onto the fresh grass. I said we called him Mr Magnificent. Julie told us that he had been castrated because she fell in love with him and wanted to keep him but he was surplus to the herd. It was then she told us of his name. The big black bull’s name is Moo Moo.

I’ll just leave that there…..OK?
