Please have a look at some of the fabulous flowers that have been sent to Beckys Square in September
I thought it was time for some Australian native flower. In August the Native Wisteria entwines among the Fringe Wattle blooms throughout my property. I love the purple and yellow.
This time instead of one letter E, Cee want 2 E’s in the word for the photos.
I think that Wedged-tailed Eagles have enough E’s
Sitting high in the eucalypt tree, the Wedged-tailed Eagle kept an eye on me.
Soaring high in the sky, circling on the air currents, ever higher.
It is not often Wedged-tailed Eagles are seen on the ground. Here, these two have their lunch. They didn’t enjoy my company and took off not long after this photo was taken.
Once in the air, I could see the Water Dragon was lunch. The Magpie wasn’t keen to have Wedged-tailed Eagles in its territory.
Driving down my road one day I disturbed a Wedged-tailed Eagle. With a wing span of 2.3 metres, it took a while to get going
Have a look at some other great “EE” photos over at Cees Photography
Frank has set the photo challenge of Stones. I know I have posted these before but they are stones that represent a part of the history of Australia. Many years ago, the Indigenous people of the land, that I now call my place, used to trek through this land. They may have been following the seasons. Walking from the Mann River to the Clarence River to perhaps trade with the other peoples from the other parts of the Clarence Valley. Someone took the time to fashion a hand axe from the stones that I still find here. This stone axe fits perfectly in my hand and I would be able to use it today. The edge is very sharp.
This stone is the one that would have been used to chip off the edge of the axe. Again a tool that fits very comfortably in my hand.
Here is both together where you can see the edge of the axe
Thanks for reading my Stones. The Indigenous culture is thousands of years old. I have no idea how old these tools are. European settlement in my area has been over 100 years. I am privileged to hold these tools knowing I have the past history living in my home. Thank you Frank for allowing me to tell the story.
I promised Lisa from A Day In The Life that I would post a White Hydrangea for Beckys A Life of a 40 Something Square in September flower challenge.
Sorry Becky, I have cheated a little as I haven’t posted one photo.
The White Hydrangea flower ball. A very early bloom from a young plant so it’s not as big as I hope the flowers will one day become.
Ever looked behind a Hydrangea? Almost reminds me of the Segrada Familia photos I posted a while ago.
The centers of the individual flower have a beauty all of their own.
I felt inspired to do another flower for Beckys Flower a day photo challenge at The Life of a 40 Something
It’s the Mundane Monday Challenge. I was in a shop and apparently no one wanted to buy these shoes. Discarded. All alone. Tossed onto the floor. Dejected that lay waiting for that special person to buy them. I wonder if anyone did….
I thought I would join in on Beckys Photo Challenge. The idea is to post a flower a day in square format.
Don’t you think this Pansy looks a bit like a lion?

An interesting photo challenge from Cee: Black & White Candid Shots. Here is a couple from my collection
Someone walking by
The amazing art work from Russia in the Venice Biennale in 2015. The eyes actually moved. When this bloke left the room the eyes followed him.
The letter D. Four letter word. Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Best stick to one word Dove ‘cos I love photographing birds.
