Macro Monday – 9 May

I was chatting to Graham over at Grahams Island about Cordyline flowers and wondered if my red Cordylines Cordyline rubra would flower. Well I was walking around that part of the garden and there they were!!!!

This is the whole plant, still quite small.

Also for Cee’s FOTD

Cee’s Mid-week madness Challenge May: Close up or Macro

I have been trying to get on top of my photos, naming, categorising and putting into folders. I never ending job which I let get out of control.

For this months CMMC, I have these photos from 23 March 2020 that I found while sorting today. Only one has been used before but I didn’t care as I really like it. Can you guess which one?

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #190: Close and Closer

Number two post for this challenge as it was the original idea. I built this little cabin in the garden for my girls as a playhouse which went to a tools and my building odds and ends once they were too old to play in there anymore. A lot of the contents is now in my big shed so there are still some odds and ends plus the that’ll come in handy one day stuff.

So come on, get closer.

The walls used to be part of the Jackadgery Hall

When I helped build a new section onto the hall, the boards were just in a pile and they were going to burn them.

So I asked if I could have them and everyone said take them.

Not only did I use them for the walls on the cabin but also built a bookcase and part of a wall on another shed.
