Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Places People Visit
I am going to be very home town for places people visit. At this time of year, my town of Grafton is awash with purple. The Jacaranda trees are starting to come into flower and the town is gearing up for the annual Jacaranda Festival.
The Jacaranda Festival is the longest running floral festival in Australia. People come from all over the world to Grafton to visit and wander the town, look at the gardens and marvel at the purple everywhere.
The trees look a treat
There is even a few White Jacaranda trees around town
The streets look a treat. When the blossoms drop the ground is a carpet of purple.
Even the birds like to nest in the Jacaranda trees
There is poignant street art.
I have some people booked into my place this weekend from Taiwan so maybe I will have a busy few days over the weeks to come at the Durranbah Bush Retreat
Cee’s prompt: Things People Play With
A wonderful creation by a four year old given a basket of drift wood, pumice, some toys and a lot of imagination.
I bet you didn’t see the horse in the first photo

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (among others): Power lines and Black and White
The day was just beginning. As usual, the birds were singing from the trees, flying about, some collecting insects on the wing others strolling about the garden finding things to have for breakfast.
Once their morning rituals had been observed, it was time to chill out and discuss what the day ahead had planned. This morning, the chosen meeting place for the Mud Larks, Magpie Larks or more commonly called Pee Wees, was to be on the power lines where all could observe the surroundings.
This morning, some gathered as agreed, a flurry of small black and white settled onto the power lines.
But wait, something doesn’t seem right.
“Hey…….you blokes………..who is the big bloke over there?” “I don’t know” as they looked from one to the other.
“I don’t know either, but I’ll get rid of him!” “This swoop will see him off.”
“What do you think you are about buster……now rack off……these are my Power lines”
Topics include – Purple, Colours, Wood, Garage, Vintage Cars

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Week 1: Photo Geometry, bushes, window, brick, curtain, green, tan, wall, building, dark red, tree
What a selection Cee has chosen for us to pick from. I think it may be several posts if I get the inspiration. This post started off as Geometry but a few Windows appeared.
Some geometry from inside an art work in the Centre Pompidou Paris
Another art work from the Centre Pompidou – some neon geometry
Once I thought of geometry, along came some stained glass windows as well. A church in Lyon France
The wonderful stained glass windows from the Segrada Familia in Barcelona
