A golden future

Sunday Stills: The #Future is Ours

First up I must admit I have stolen this idea from Cee. I have been sorting my photos (yes still almost a year behind Becky!!) and found this sequence of Golden Lycra flowers from my garden.

Terri’s title made me think of this song. Many of you may not know Normie Rowe. He was a pop sensation in Australia in the 1960-70’s but you will know the song. Not a sugary sweet as the Doris Day version though.

Meanwhile while you are having a 60’s bop here is the future in flowers

From these Golden Lycra buds……

……to these flowers which appeared so quickly I didn’t get a chance to get any in between photos

Also for Cee’s FOTD

5 Minutes ago – the year 2021

Hammad’s Weekend Sky

I decided to do a slideshow of the images from 2021 I posted for Hammad’s weekend sky photo challenge. All the photos were taken from the same spot but at varying times on Saturday mornings.

Here’s one of the songs I included for your listening pleasure whilst scrolling

Here is the small deck where I took the photos

The slideshow from the first few months of 2021

One time I was away and decided to do a night photo when I got home

Here is the second slide show for the latter part of 2021. I changed my media folder as the one I used was getting full, hence a second slideshow.

Who know what I will do for 2022 if Hammad can keep going with his photo challenge. Lots of people love Weekend Sky and contribute their wonderful skies from around the world

5 Minutes ago – 18 December (with updates)

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #51

Your sky song to scroll to

This first lot of photos were taken last Saturday – 11 December as I had to go out early. They sat unused so I thought I would get them out for this weeks post hoping that Hammad was able to set his challenge. The first one was a lucky shot as I hit the button a small flock of Rainbow Lorikeets flew over

The golden sunrise reflecting on the trees

This weeks photos – 18 December the sun was trying to set some colour for me

There were a couple of birds that flew across this morning but not when I was ready

and this is really 5 minutes ago at 5:10pm on 26 December I was on the little deck and the crack of thunder made me jump. An afternoon storm after a hot day is almost here

An Aussie song to help you relax

Daisies for Cees Sister

It was with a heavy heart I read that Cees sister had died on her post

I am sending a few of my daisies and a song to Cee for her sister and her memory

A field of Australian Paper Daisies on the roadside in the mountains near my place

Another Australian Native Daisy – a Sea Daisy

One from my garden

Sending much love Cee

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Christmas #Song Lyric Photo Challenge

Here’s is the Christmas song I picked. Perhaps not your traditional and it quite up beat. It’s a catchy tune and has lyrics that you’ll be singing along to well after the song has finished. So with a hey and a he and a ho ho…..hit play if you want and scrollo down for my Christmas Tree photo….with a he and ho and a ha ha…..

Which one did you like best?

A Winters Day…..in a deep and dark

The Weekly Prompts Weekend Colour Challenge: Winters Day

A Winters day and this song just started in my head

Onto having a look at my Winters Day

So out of bed the suns coming up

There’s a bit of fog in the gullies

But it’s a nice day at the beach

The birds are heading off to roost

The suns setting…..c’mon we better be going then

All the photos were taken in Winter in the Northern Rivers Region of New South Wales Australia – where I live.

From the usual place

The sun is higher in the sky this morning. Yes I did have a sleep in!

More of the trees the are in the sunshine this morning
