Texture – looking at a Banksia

Judes 2020 Photo Challenge #11: Texture

Get in close to a Banksia spinulosa, commonly called a Hairpin Banksia and Bush Candles, seeing why the Banksia has that name. The inner green and the form to yellow with blueish purple tips. 190411_blog_challenge_flower_banksia_spinulosa2
Once you get to see the full flower the colour change is dramatic with the dominant colour becoming orange and a Bush Candle lights up the bush.190411_blog_challenge_flower_banksia_spinulosa1

Waiting for a boiled egg

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Butter
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Textures

While waiting for the egg to boil and have already buttered the toast, my own homemade bread, the inspiration took hold. I grabbed my camera and here is my breakfast. That sounds so Instagram or Twitter doesn’t it!

Yes, yesterday was rather warm and I forgot to put the butter in the fridge

 
I have been searching for a glass butter dish for quite a while. Many of the antique dishes were either not quite right or hideously expensive. I was looking online and one came up in a retail outlet that looked like what I wanted. Yes I did buy it and it cost me $18! The butter dish was $9.75 and the postage $8.25. A bargain for exactly what I wanted don’t you think?  191023_blog_challenge_butter_breakfast_dish

The texture of the rock shelf at Evans Head. This part is called Goanna Head. Perhaps the rocks look like the scales of a Goanna.
