The Friendly Friday Challenge: Framing Your Subject

Having a look

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Peep

There is the shy peep from the trees

The loud peep as someone is about to arrive with some food

The peep over the neighbours fence look

Or the sense that someone is peeking at you

The Mum says it’s alright but I’m not so sure peep from the pouch

Square Trees #28 – in my town

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge July: Square Tree

The nearest town to my place is Grafton. It hosts an annual floral festival, the oldest in Australia where the town spend ten days of purple madness and fun. Set when the Jacaranda Trees are in flower, this year from 29 October to 7 November, the town is awash in purple from the townsfolk dressed in purple to the magnificent trees showing all their glory.

Here is your song for today

The trees do look a treat

I love the purple of the trees against a grey sky, which seems to happen most years as it is also the start of our wet season.

The mass of flowers is great but they individual flowers look good as well.

While writing this post I also thought of a photo I posted many years ago. The building I was working in had a Jacaranda Tree close by. One day I noticed there was something in the tree. Sorry Becky, it’s not square.

F’en birds

Who has been eating the berries

Debbies Six Word Saturday

The Tuckaroo Tree has lovely berries and the tree is quite a show, not photographic but quite lovely with small yellow/orange berries. I noticed that there seemed to be a lot on the ground, a bit more than usual. Then it hit me. Yes a berry dropped onto my head. Now I know why.
