This was the view that greeted me as I opened the door leading to the deck at the back of the house. Eerie looking view thanks to the fog. Usually we could only see white everywhere, but this time it seemed that the sun wouldn’t be beaten without a fight as I could see it shone through the mist. It was 1 degree Celsius.
From: My Many Colored Days by Dr Seuss Some days are yellow. Some are blue. On different days I’m different too. You’d be surprised how many ways I change on Different Colored Days. On Bright Red Days how good it feels to be a horse and kick my heels! On other days I’m other things. On Bright Blue Days I flap my wings. Some days, of course, feel sort of Brown. Then I feel slow and low, low down. Then […]
How lovely it was to be back home and found that most of the green trees have changed colours. Someone told me that the reason most of the trees in Canberra are changing colours in autumn is because they are not native Australian trees. These trees were imported from Europe, and Australian trees don’t change colours. I don’t know whether that’s true, I might google it at a later date, but one thing for sure, I LOVE it. I’m grateful […]

It’s been autumn for over a month but its leaves still green, that’s the only thing that was quite disappointing. I’ve taken a photo of this tree before where the leaves were still on the tree but the color has all changed to yellow. Still one of my favourite iPhone photos to date. I […]
I love taking photos of water reflection. I know I took one yesterday, and again today. Usually I stop myself in taking the same type of photographs or same objects in my daily post, at least not the same things two days in a row. Not because I did not want to take the shot, I still do, it’s just this feeling I had that tells me to take a different one every day for a bit of variety. During […]
Those in Canberra who slept through the morning and only woke up at noon would not believe it if I told them that this was how the morning looked like today. We woke up, we opened the blind, and still we thought we were a bit blind. It was white everywhere. We haven’t had a morning like this for so long, it took me awhile to move away from the window. This favourite dead tree of mine stands in the area […]
