Lines and Squares #28

Day twenty-eight of Becky’s Photo Challenge Lines and Squares

This is how a Eucalypt tree recovers after a fire has burnt the tree. The wonderful green against the blackened limbs with the new red tips of the leaves as the tree returns to its beautiful best.

Bubbles

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Blast
The Daily Word Prompt: Copious
All was going to plan. A romantic getaway, a wonderful dinner in the restaurant, soft music, candles lit around the room, hot water running for the bath and then “someone” decided to add some lovely smelling scented bubble bath.
It was then the blast occurred. The spa jets turned on and copious amounts of bubbles appeared, exploding their way out of the bath and onto the floor with no way of holding back the tide.

Worried…..no.
Laugh a lot….yes.
So when an artist and photographer get together to assess the situation and work out what to do……
1. Do they try to mop the floor?
2. Turn off the spa jets?
3. Do they summon assistance?
4. Make the best of the situation? or
5. Do the creative thing they always seem to do when they are out and about?

 

 

If you answered yes to 5, you are correct

Waiting for a boiled egg

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Butter
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Textures

While waiting for the egg to boil and have already buttered the toast, my own homemade bread, the inspiration took hold. I grabbed my camera and here is my breakfast. That sounds so Instagram or Twitter doesn’t it!

Yes, yesterday was rather warm and I forgot to put the butter in the fridge

 
I have been searching for a glass butter dish for quite a while. Many of the antique dishes were either not quite right or hideously expensive. I was looking online and one came up in a retail outlet that looked like what I wanted. Yes I did buy it and it cost me $18! The butter dish was $9.75 and the postage $8.25. A bargain for exactly what I wanted don’t you think?  191023_blog_challenge_butter_breakfast_dish

I love to splash

“Its OK, come on in my brother, I won’t splash you”
“That’s what you said last time”
“Come on, it’s a hot day and this bird bath is lovely and cool”
“Alright I will. Just don’t splash me”

“What was that? Are you splashing?”
“Oh no I’m not, it’s just my tail trying to get a bit wetter”

“Hey watch out, you’re getting water in my face. You know I don’t like that!”

“Now you really are getting water everywhere.” “Look at it dripping off my beak!” “You can’t help yourself can you”rainbow_lorikeets_bird_bath_fun_splash4_named_caniaba_oct 2019
“Oh for Petes sake, will you just stop splashing me.” “The water is cold” rainbow_lorikeets_bird_bath_fun_splash5_named_caniaba_oct 2019
“He he he he….”rainbow_lorikeets_bird_bath_fun_splash6_named_caniaba_oct 2019

“Hey, where are you going, it was just a bit of fun wasn’t it.” “It was only water”
