Rose

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Rose

So many ideas for Rose that Steph proposed but I think I’ll just go with the fabulous flower that is the Rose and maybe sneak in a surprise Rose.

and for Sarah’s 30 Days 30 Songs

Here at the farm

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Farm

My property is not really a farm. Over the years there has been horses, cattle, sheep, geese, ducks, goats, vegetable gardens, fruit trees and of course chooks. Nowadays I just have Australian Native Trees that grow all by themselves without much work from me. There is about one-third of the property that has been conserved with a Native Vegetation Conservation Agreement. I was wondering if I had many photos of the past and almost all of them are on film. One day I’ll do the hunt and scan of the old photos, but today is not that day.

Here is a selection of what I can find from the digital camera.

The road to where

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Road
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Lost

Is this the road?
Should we come this way
Let’s stop and see
That sign, over there
But I can’t find that
On the map
Don’t worry
Look at the flowers
Don’t worry
Stupid map
We’ll find it
Perhaps another sign
We’ve stopped
We’ve come this way
Is this the road?

Size

Here is Debbies One Word Sunday: Size
Some of the things I have been contemplating on contributing for OWS perhaps can also be some of my Favourite Things as Patti from Ragtag asked.
Perhaps some of the small things in my world should be a start. The feature photo is a Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest honeyeater and a red jewel that flashes through my garden and the forest.

I love having Stingless Native Bees in my garden

I have to include some big things too. Kookaburras are always hunting in the garden and waking me with their morning song

Isn’t she a beauty. She lived in my laundry for a Summer and then came into the lounge and dining rooms for Winter last year. I think she became bored of my company and headed outside.170315_side view_huntsman_size

Courage

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Courage

The Wedged-tailed Eagle has his lunch, a Water Dragon, and is being harassed by a Magpie. It takes courage to fly near a Magpie nest

A Square-tailed Kite soars above the forest much to the displeasure of a Noisy Friarbird. The shape to the left rear of the Kite is the Friarbird about to give the Kite a good kick.

The courage of much smaller birds defending their territory against large birds of prey takes courage don’t you think?
