Good Morning and Aperitivo

Terri’s Sunday Stills: The Rise and Set of the Sun

I have been going into the archives of late as my limit of images and words is getting close to full and I don’t want to spend more as I really can’t justify going to the next level. I don’t have enough time to get into my blog and start deleting the old stuff which I really must do. You may wonder why I am rattling on I guess. Well these photo are new ones from the past week.

Why have I titled my post Good Morning, well it is sunrise a almost a week ago when I was at the coast. Sunrise from my place is really boring as I live in a forest and don’t really see a full wonderful sunrise.

and aperitivo? At sunset it is far too early to say good night. Sunset is a lovely time to sit and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine or your favourite drink, and some lovely snacks, light biscuits, crackers, cheese, olives or sun dried tomatoes or capsicum for the naughty like me potato chips or as I have found recently sweet potato chips. So have your glass ready and lets salute the setting sun.

Vale Dame Vera

In the garden

Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Plant Life Grows Around Us

I had intended doing a walk around the garden today but rain, glorious rain stopped that adventure. Here is a bit of a glimpse at my garden from the 2020 archives.

Spirits are all around…..

…..if you look hard enough.

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Lifted Spirits

Unlike Terri’s husband 😉 I don’t have a spirits cabinet or any bottles either empty or full and my spirits are nearly always lifted as I enjoy my life and bushboys world.

Over the years I have tried to get images of spirits, ghosts, apparitions, phantoms or spectres. These are the ones I have found

Early to Rise

Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Early to Rise

From my place in the forest I don’t have a great vantage point to get a great early to rise photo. This is what I often can get when I am early to rise

You can see the sliver of our Moon in the above photo which was early to rise that morning too

A sweet future

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #83: Future
Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Sweet

Since the fire, I have been putting out food for the Red-necked Wallabies and anyone else who was hungry. A while ago I noticed one of the females pouch was getting bigger and eventually a Joey poked their head out (Jump for Joy) and the update

This morning a Red-necked Wallaby hopped in to the garden. I have seen her before as she was one of the regulars who came for food. Today, I noticed her pouch was a bit squirmy and yes she also has a Joey.

As the Wallabies have Joeys, it points to a good season ahead. When the years are not that good as the past 2 – 3 years have been, there hasn’t been many young around. During hard times, Wallabies won’t produce young.

I’ll be keeping an eye out for others now. Having a photographic record I should be able to identify the females and those who have young.
