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

It’s buildings – in many ways

The Lens-Artists Challenge #173: Interesting Architecture

I have been thinking about this theme since I first read it way too early in the morning to have many cohesive thoughts. Here is a random mish mash of constructions with interesting architecture.

I’ve opted for a slideshow for a change. Enjoy your travels and hope that there are interesting architectural surprises along the way

Sometimes it’s hard………

……..being a Swallow

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Swallow

There is always washing to be done,

after that drying in the sun,

invite friends over for some fun.

Say goodbye, a good time, one of the best

But now it’s onto building the nest

Yes that’s right, soft feathers we need

and soon it’s babies to feed

three fat babies crammed into the nest

sitting around and getting fed is the best

The day is over and we are quite spent
’tis wearying being a parent

A busy day tomorrow
so enjoy the morning
with the Welcome Swallow

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.
