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.
First surprise Rose, a Desert Rose
Or of course there are Ceiling Roses for number two
and for the final surprise, how could I not include my Winter visitor to my garden, the little fabulous Rose Robin
and for Sarah’s 30 Days 30 Songs
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 Ragtag Tuesday prompt: Droplet
I have to include my all time favourite droplet but this time I used it as the feature image.
Here is a few droplet photos I could find
The Ragtag prompt Monday: Breeze
Another great song for Sarah’s 30 Days 30 Songs
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
Look at the flowers
We’ll find it
Perhaps another sign
We’ve come this way
Is this the road?
Another favourite for Sarah’s 30 days 30 songs
The Ragtag Sunday prompt: Surprise
30 days 30 Songs
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
and of course Blue-banded Bees scrunching into flowers
All of the tiny native flowers that abound on my place
I have to include some big things too. Kookaburras are always hunting in the garden and waking me with their morning song
Overhead one of the Square-tailed Kite family soars
While in the garden, a Red-necked Wallaby snacks on the Honey Gem Grevillea
The trees of the forest that surround are the big
Now a warning for those who have a thing about spiders – there is one in the next image
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.
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Line
A Line-blue Butterfly on a line
The sunset through lines of palm leaves
Lines of birds flying high
Lines of clouds on a hot Summers day sunset
One of my favourite songs. This was done after Roy Orbison died. His guitar is on the rocking chair
Should add this to Share your Music by Sarah
The Ragtag Saturday Prompt: Patterns
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?
