Hammad’s Weekend Sky #32

I was all ready for a Weekend Sky post last weekend. I awoke early to a coloured sky for a change. So this post will not be in vain. It is a double Weekend Sky for the 19th June and the 26th June

The coloured morning sky of the 19th

The still grey skies

Our world is wonderful

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 153: It’s a Wonderful World

Not going to go with the obvious song as everyone has already done that. Here’s my take on the song of choice

Sky show

The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Glimpse

Early morning
awake
sunrise colours
the sky
Through trees
streaks
of colour
but what
a glimpse
see it
yes
our moon
being chased
across
the sky
early morning.

Outside
before bed
dark sky
bathed in
clouds
Impending rain
trees sway
a glimpse
light
clouds
hint colour
our moon
strong
sends love
before bed
outside.

It’s my country comfort

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Country Comfort

Have a listen while you enjoy my country comfort

The road to my place. In this post I haven’t included so much that happens here to keep it brief, no butterflies or insects, a few birds, no garden flowers, no bush views, I hope you don’t mind.

Mt country comfort in the bush

My favourite place to go and relax and enjoy the bush, the sounds and the birds

How I communicate with the world

The sheds are a place of work and contemplation

The garden relaxes

Some days I actually see sunrise

There is always visitors who come to the verandah and say g’day A male Satin Bowerbird drops in and is usually followed by a female or two. I can tell when the mountains are getting a bit cooler when the Bowerbirds come down from the mountains and settle here for Winter.

Tiny the King Parrot enjoys coming to the house to make sure I am OK. Not really, he’s just looking for snacks.

Sometimes a stranger wants to see why the verandah is special. A Wonga Pigeon was a first time visitor to the garden a few years ago. I hope they return this year.

Sometimes the king Parrots are quite curious on what I am doing around the place

The place to sit and relax and enjoy the country comfort. When are you going to drop in?

The Photo a Week Challenge: Backlit

This post is an experiment in using my photos utilising a separate WP site to hold my photos. This blog’s media is getting full and try as I might I can’t delete enough photos fast enough to reduce my storage. Thanks to Jude for suggesting doing this and her helpful tips. Let’s see if I can do it and it works.

Palms at sunrise

The early morning upside down spider

Whoo hoo. It works and is easy to do

More new things

The Weekly Prompts Wednesday: New

Isn’t it funny that some word prompts seem to align. As I have already posted a few new things before, I dug around for a few more.

As usual a song to get you through this post and maybe onto your next one

A new morning, good to see the sunrise

New growth on a Eucalypt

New growth pushing through the soil

A new plants pods on my place. A Leafless Globe Pea

The Lolly Bush is an old plant in the bush at my place but this seed head is a new sight for me.

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #16

As Hammad has been absent but I was still keen to take a photo every Saturday morning from the same spot but at varying times. Following are the ones I have amassed while waiting for our friend Hammad and his family to recover from this horrid Covid virus and get a break from working from home.

Here is your sky song for the weekend
